A media report said that Anthony Sanchez was found guilty of the counts on Friday for the shooting that killed 23-year-old Franco Gonzalez-Mendez and injured 22-year-old Edgar Gonzalez-Mendez.

Sanchez faces 25 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced in March. Police say the shooting followed an argument between two groups of men outside a south Omaha restaurant.
