The man who killed a U-Haul clerk in Pittsburgh’s Larimer neighborhood in 2021 has been convicted of second-degree murder.
Braijon Burton, who was 21 at the time of the shooting, wanted to rent a truck but couldn’t afford to pay for it.
Jake Jaillet, 21, was killed in the shooting. He wasn’t even supposed to be at work the day he was shot and killed at his summer job.
Jaillet’s best friend testified they were both working at the store for the summer. The friend said he heard two gunshots and ran out of the business. He found Jaillet lying in the parking lot.
The friend then made a heartbreaking phone call to 911 as he applied pressure to Jaillet’s neck, asking dispatchers to send an ambulance.
