MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man has been convicted of killing a 16-year-old Mississippi girl and wounding four other people in a shooting at a park three years ago.

A jury found Marcus Malone guilty Friday of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Alana Tello, of Horn Lake, Mississippi.

Shelby County prosecutors said Malone fired into a group of teenagers at Zodiac Park in Memphis during a fight on Nov. 1, 2016. Two groups of teens had met at the park to settle a prior argument.

Tello was shot in the back of her neck. She died at the park. Four others were wounded.
