OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been convicted of first-degree murder in connection to a shooting death at a party following a Miley Cyrus concert last year.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1z9zBmf ) 24-year-old LaRon M. Jones was found guilty Thursday in the March shooting of 21-year-old Brandon Samuels. He was also convicted on two weapons charges.

Police say a fight broke out at the house party, and when the fight escalated, Jones and others got into cars to leave. They say Jones returned to the end of the home’s driveway and began firing shots into the air and then at the house.

Jones faces a life term in prison. A sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled.
