The second suspect in the murder of 18-year-old Florida man was found guilty Wednesday, according to reports.

A jury found 22-year-old Amos Snowden guilty of first-degree premeditated murder in the shooting death of 18-year-old Ladarius Clardy in July 2021. The charge comes with a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Snowden was also found guilty of attempted first-degree premeditated murder for shooting the other man in the car, Eric Young.

He is now the second man convicted in Clardy’s murder, as his brother Da’Quavion Snowden was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison last July.

Clardy — a Pine Forest High School football standout who was on the Kennesaw State football team — was shot and killed on July 1, 2021, while driving in the area of Hollywood Ave. and Fairfield Drive.

Authorities say 50 bullets were fired at Clardy’s car as he was mistaken as the target in a contract killing. Clardy sustained 14 gunshot wounds.

Along with the Snowdens, three other men were initially arrested in Clardy’s murder — Kobie Jenkins, Timothy Knight and Terrell Parker — but their charges were dropped last February.
