DETROIT (AP) -- A jury has found a 29-year-old Detroit man guilty of first-degree murder for gunning down his 7-year-old daughter, grandmother and aunt.

Police report that Ferdarius Shine's mother told them he ran from the house after the Feb. 15, 2013, shootings, screaming that "the devil" made him do it.

He surrendered at a psychiatric hospital the next day and underwent a mental competency exam before his trial in Wayne County Circuit Court. A jury convicted him Monday.

The victims were Shines' daughter Amera Jones, his 49-year-old aunt Santangela Williams and his 68-year-old grandmother Geraldine Bates.

Investigators say he had a concealed weapon license.

First-degree murder in Michigan carries a mandatory penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
