An Antioch man was convicted Thursday in the 2013 slayings of two clerks at a jewelry shop in the South of Market area of San Francisco and trying to kill the owner of the business over the disputed price of a gold chain.A San Francisco Superior Court jury convicted Barry White Jr., 27, on two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder stemming from the violence that erupted July 12, 2013, inside the San Francisco Gift Center and Jewelry Mart on Brannan Street.White was also convicted of six other counts of attempted murder and six counts of assault on a peace officer for opening fire on San Francisco police who responded to the jewelry store killings.The conviction carries a special-circumstance designation because White committed multiple murders, making him eligible for life in prison without parole.During the trial, White’s attorney, Deputy Public Defender Kwixuan Maloof, argued for manslaughter, saying White suffered from an untreated mental disorder after he was shot in the head in 2009 in a confrontation with Antioch police.Assistant District Attorney Diane Knoles said that especially with the four-year anniversary of the killings coming up next week, she hoped the verdict would bring some measure of closure to the families of the victims.Security camera footage played for the jury during the trial that started in early June showed a calm and collected White speaking with Hung before the killings.White waited until the last customer left the store before challenging Hung over the $5,500 he paid for a gold chain he had purchased weeks earlier, claiming it weighed less than it should have.
