DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - One man was convicted and another was acquitted in a central Florida fatal shooting.

A Volusia County jury found 35-year-old Frederick Smith guilty Wednesday of second degree-murder, while 39-year-old Anwar Sadat Green was found not guilty. Smith faces a possible life sentence.

Witnesses testified that Smith and Green had gotten into a fight with 25-year-old Antwan Harris on New Year’s Day 2013. The witnesses say Smith fired several shots into Harris’ car near DeLand.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://goo.gl/tZtsCY ) reports that Smith admitted to shooting Harris during a controlled call recorded by the sheriff’s office.
