SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Guilty on all charges -- that's the verdict a San Francisco jury handed down to the man who shot and killed two people at the Jewelry Mart and Gift Center in 2013.

Barry White Jr. could face life without the possibility of parole.
Late Thursday, a jury found White guilty of murdering Khin Min and Lina Lim, who both worked at a store inside San Francisco's jewelry mart in 2013.

"We decided that the intent was there, so the premeditation was there," said juror David Zensius.

Surveillance video showed White trying to unsuccessfully shoot and kill the store's owner, who White claimed overcharged him for a gold chain.

White slit both Lim and Min's throats and shot Lim.

"Everybody is crying, very emotional," said cousin Annie Sin. "We are still kind of in a blur right now."

It has been a long four years sine the rampage which ended after White shot at police and ran out of ammo before surrendering.

Yadegar watched the entire bloody scene from his store inside of the jewelry mart. They say no one's been able to successfully rent the space across the hall since. He's relieved by the conviction.

"I'm gonna go grab my cigar and smoke a cigar and say, 'You know what, there is justice,'" Yadegar told ABC7 News.

White's attorney isn't so sure. He built a case for insanity, which White refuted at the last minute.

"When somebody wants to defend themselves at closing argument, that says a lot about their mentality and about where they are," said defense attorney Kwixuan Maloof.

A sentencing date has not been set.
