A man who was seen on bar security footage firing at a car, causing it to crash and killing the driver in the Waverly/Ednor Gardens-Lakeside neighborhoods, was convicted in a Baltimore court, the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office said.

Bryan Hannah was convicted of voluntary manslaughter, use of a firearm in a crime of violence, possession of a handgun, and possession of a regulated firearm by a prohibited person. The case was prosecuted by Assistant State's Attorney Charles Marin Fitzpatrick. 

On December 26, 2017, Baltimore Police responded to the 3800 block of Ellerslie Avenue at roughly 10:04 p.m. There they found Daniel Mullhausen suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his bank, sitting behind the wheel of a damaged car. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries. 

A neighborhood bar roughly a block from where Mullhausen was found captured the shooting on surveillance footage. The video shows Hannah inside the tavern. When police questioned Hannah and showed him photos from the footage, Hannah confirmed it was him. 

The video also shows Mullhausen's car pull up outside the tavern and pause before eventually pulling around to the side of the building. Hannah then charges at the driver's side of Mullhausen's car, punching inside the driver's side window as Mullhausen tries to pull away. 

Once Mullhausen is out of reach of Hannah's blows, Hannah takes out a weapon and starts firing at the car, causing it to crash. 

Hannah's DNA was also found on vials of cocaine recovered from the victim's car on the night of the shooting. 

Hannah faces a potential sentence of 45 years when he is sentenced on Nov. 28, 2018.
