HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - Jurors have convicted an Oregon man of murdering a rival gang member nearly three years ago.

Niaz Khoshnaw was 18 when he killed 28-year-old Luis Guzman outside a Forest Grove apartment.

He testified this week that he shot Guzman in self-defense.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/yDzRYe) that Washington County jurors took six hours before reaching a guilty verdict Friday afternoon.

Besides the murder charge, Khoshnaw was found guilty of tampering with a witness. Prosecutors said he threatened to kill a gang member who spoke with police about the killing.
