Man Sentenced to Death in Shooting Rampage

November 12, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A black man was sentenced to death for killing three white men in a racially motivated shooting rampage.

Ronald Taylor, 41, was convicted in the March 1, 2000, violence that started at his apartment in suburban Wilkinsburg near Pittsburgh and continued at two nearby restaurants.

The jury, which took two days to reach its decision, had the option of sentencing Taylor to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Judge Lawrence O'Toole will formally sentence Taylor but is bound by the jury's decision on the three first-degree murder charges. No date was set for the formal sentencing.
