Man who fired 48 shots at Tacoma gas station guilty of second-degree murder

Jurors found 31-year-old Robert Grott guilty of second-degree murder Tuesday, for fatally shooting 23-year-old Julian “Jay” Thomas in February 2016. Prosecutors argued for first-degree murder — saying that the 48 shots Grott fired at a Tacoma gas station were premeditated. But jurors couldn’t agree on that, and said evidence of the former Marine’s Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder was a focus of deliberations.
