JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A 25-year-old Jacksonville man faces up to 60 years in prison after jurors found him guilty of a drive-by shooting that killed one man and injured another.

The State Attorney’s Office says Demarcus Sharod Johnson had faced the death penalty but a deal with prosecutors in August took that option off the table. He was convicted on charges of murder, attempted murder and aggravated battery.

The Florida Times-Union (bit.ly/1safcLV) reports the shooting followed a nightclub altercation that resulted in a drink being tossed in Johnson’s face. He then fatally shot 23-year-old Bryan James Clemons and injured 30-year-old Bobby Eady. Authorities say Eady recovered from his wounds.

Johnson’s defense attorney Richard Kuritz says he expects to file an appeal.
