GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A 30-year-old man accused in a 2014 fatal shooting in Grand Forks has been convicted of murder and burglary.

WDAZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1ddxx49 ) that Delvin Shaw is facing the prospect of life in prison without parole when he’s sentenced on July 31.

Shaw was charged in the June 2014 death of 24-year-old Jose Lopez, who authorities say was shot three times in his Grand Forks apartment. Police say Lopez wasn’t the intended target, but that Shaw went to the wrong apartment.

Shaw represented himself at trial, unsuccessfully trying to convince the jury that he police were trying to frame him. Jurors convicted him Monday.

The other suspect in Lopez’s death, 19-year-old Dametrian Welch, agreed to plead guilty in March to a reduced charge of facilitating murder.
