   KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A jury has found a man guilty of killing his boss outside the University of Kansas Hospital.

   A Wyandotte County jury on Thursday convicted 48-year-old Willie E. Parker of first-degree murder in the July 2015 death of Michel Ziade.

   Parker worked for Ziade, of Lee's Summit, Missouri. Ziade owned First Class Medical Transportation, which provided non-emergency medical transport.

   The shooting occurred in a parking lot near the hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.

   Parker was arrested about a week later in Missouri after a five-hour standoff with police.

   Parker will be sentenced July 28.
