After two weeks of testimony, jurors have delivered a verdict Friday that drew cries in a Fresno County murder trial.

The courtroom crowd could hear the disappointment from supporters of Vance Sams. Sams was found guilty of murdering a romantic rival two years ago.

Investigators said Sams killed Ray Fisher on the Fourth of July in 2014. Fisher was dating Sams' ex-girlfriend at the time of the murder.

Witnesses told police Sams tried to blame the gunfire noise on fireworks.
