NEW YORK (AP) - A North Carolina man has been found guilty of attempted murder in the 2010 shooting of a New York City livery cab driver.

A jury convicted Shawn Peace Thursday following a three-week trial in Queens Criminal Court. He faces up to 25 years in prison when he’s sentenced March 26. Peace’s attorney said he plans to appeal after he’s sentenced.

Prosecutors argued the 25-year-old Charlotte man shot livery cab driver Trevor Bell during an attempted robbery in December 2010.

Peace was also convicted on assault, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon charges. Prosecutors say he robbed five fast food chain restaurants, including a Wendy’s and a McDonald’s in Queens.

Peace has been held in jail since his 2011 arrest in upstate Buffalo.
