TIGARD, OR (KPTV) -

A man who shot and killed a father picking up his child at a Tigard home was convicted of murder Wednesday.

A jury found Orlando Pouncey, 30, guilty of murder, unlawful use of a weapon and felon in possession of a firearm.

Pouncey shot 36-year-old Jerry Nguyen on Jan. 30, 2015 on the 10700 block of Canterbury Lane. Police said Nguyen was picking up his child from his ex-wife's condo when he was shot.

The child was inside the home at the time.

Investigators said Pouncey was a friend of the woman and lived across the street. Pouncey ran from the scene after the shooting and was caught in Spanaway, WA 10 days later by the U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force and the Pierce County Sheriff's Office.

Nguyen worked at Canyon Auto Repair & Collision.

His ex-wife, Lauren Nguyen, was arrested in April 2015 on the charge of felon in possession of ammunition.

Investigators said her purchase of dozens of rounds of 9mm ammunition was recorded by surveillance cameras.

Police said at the time of Lauren Nguyen's arrest they suspected there may be a connection between the ammunition she purchased and the deadly shooting of her ex-husband.

Her prior criminal history includes convictions for forgery, possession of a controlled substance, criminal mischief, felon in possession of a firearm and driving while revoked.

She pleaded guilty in August 2015 to the federal charge of felon in possession of ammunition. She was sentenced to three years probation in December 2015.

Pouncey is scheduled to be sentenced on June 3.
