HINES, Justice.

Richard Wooten was found guilty of the malice murder of Marvin Peoples and the aggravated assault of Charles Rushing. Wooten fatally shot Peoples and wounded Rushing in a restaurant parking lot. Wooten contends that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions, urging that the absence of malice authorized at most a verdict of voluntary manslaughter. Finding the evidence sufficient to support the convictions, we affirm.
