When the teenager's drug sales were lackluster Harrison tried murdering the student. On Thursday, a jury found the reverend guilty on charges related to the shooting after barely taking a day to deliberate.

And when the boy didn't meet sales expectations, Harrison arranged for the victim to be assaulted in school on March 3, 2015, according to a Suffolk County DA's press release.
