SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (AP) - A judge in Puerto Rico has found a man guilty of murdering a tourist from California during a 2008 bar fight.

Jose Perez Pagan will be sentenced in June.

He was accused of shooting Oakland resident Eddie Maco Campbells after an argument at a bar in the popular tourist area of Isla Verde.

The 37-year-old victim was shot in the head, chest and shoulder and died while receiving medical attention.

Maco was in Puerto Rico to attend a bachelor party for his sister’s fiance at the time of the February 2008 shooting.

Two of his friends also were injured in the fight, but not by gunfire.

Judge Ines Rivera Aquino found Perez guilty on Friday.
