Johnson was taken into custody in December.

He was found guilty of murder, discharging a firearm into a habitation and seven counts of felonious assault with a firearms specification.

Police believe he was just one of those responsible for the shooting. Canton police released surveillance videos outside the home that showed multiple armed men.

Almost a year later, the twins’ father was shot and killed while outside a home in the 1020 block of 13th Street NW.
