LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — A 23-year-old man accused in a 2011 drive-by shooting in Carlyss has been convicted of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.

The American Press reports a jury took an hour Wednesday to find David Caleb Fontenot guilty in the death of 20-year-old Stephin Wayne Bergeron.

Fontenot, who took the stand in his own defense, also shot at another man, Chance Bourgeois, who was with Bergeron.

Sentencing is set for April 23.
