HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Hartford man has been convicted of murder in the 2013 shooting death of a 30-year-old man.

The Hartford Courant reports a jury on Friday also found 40-year-old Montrell Brown guilty of criminal possession of a firearm. He faces up to life in prison when he’s sentenced Jan. 6.

Authorities say Brown fatally shot Edmond Johnson multiple times on Albany Avenue on July 27, 2013, during an argument.

Witnesses told police the two had a physical confrontation hours before the killing.
