WICHITA, KAN. - A jury Thursday found a known gang member guilty on a federal firearm charge, according to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Emanuel E. Goines, Jr., 30, Wichita, was convicted on one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

During, trial prosecutors presented evidence that the investigation began June 22, 2019, following the fatal shooting of Justin Green.

Officers learned Goines was present at the homicide, along with Quantezz Butler, another known gang member.

On June 25, 2019, Wichita police were looking for Butler to question him when they saw live video clips on social media showing four men in a Trailblazer who were attending the funeral of Freddy Trezvant, another known gang member.

Officers tried to stop the Trailblazer, which pulled away. During a pursuit, Goines was seen jumping out of the car and running behind a house at 1528 N. Belmont.

He appeared to be carrying a gun. Police lost sight of Goines until they saw him walking hurriedly near 14th and Broadview, where they arrested him. They recovered a handgun from the backyard of 1528 N. Belmont.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 24, 2020. Goines could face up to 10 years in federal prison. McAllister commended the Wichita Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Assistant U.S. Attorney Mona Furst and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Katie Andrusak for their work on the case.
