PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A man charged with gunning down his girlfriend’s ex-husband outside her Tigard home has been convicted of murder.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://bit.ly/26VFJOv ) that 30-year-old Orlando Lee Pouncey was found guilty Wednesday of murder, unlawful use of a weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Police say Pouncey fatally shot Jerry Duy Nguyen in January 2015 after the victim visited his ex-wife’s home to pick up his son.

The child was inside during the incident, but the child’s mother witnessed the shooting.

Pouncey’s attorney argued that Nguyen had threatened to kill his client and charged at him.

Pouncey faces life in prison when he’s sentenced June 3.
