ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage jury has convicted a man of second-degree murder in a 2010 shooting at Alaska’s busiest mall.

KTUU reports (https://is.gd/vUidSm) that the jury on Thursday also acquitted Terence Gray of first-degree murder and attempted murder.

Gray was accused of killing Edwing Matos and trying to kill Dennis Johnson in 2010 at the Dimond Center. Prosecutors say Matos and Johnson were trying to retrieve a video game console that had been stolen from Matos.

Matos had lost a console in a burglary and found a replacement for sale on Craigslist. Johnson bought the PlayStation from Gray and Matos determined it had been stolen from him.

Prosecutors say Matos and Johnson arranged to meet with Gray at the mall to discuss other stolen property. Gray showed up armed and in disguise.
