KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City, Kansas teenager has been convicted of first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of another teen.

A Wyandotte County jury found the 17-year-old Deaarion Potts guilty on Thursday of murder, car burglary and the criminal discharge of a firearm. He was 15 years old at the time of the shooting but was tried as an adult.

Authorities say Potts fatally shot 17-year-old Ramon Bradley in October 2012. They say both teens were in vehicles and Bradley was killed by shots fired from a car that Potts was driving.

He is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
