HOUSTON (AP) - A 27-year-old Houston man has been convicted in a 2013 shooting rampage at an apartment that left three people dead.

Johnathan Sanchez was convicted Tuesday of capital murder. The penalty phase begins Wednesday as Harris County prosecutors seek execution for Sanchez.

The November 2013 gunfire killed 21-year-old Yosselyn Alfaro, 17-year-olds Veronica Hernandez and Daniel Munoz.

Two other people in the apartment were wounded but survived, including one who identified Sanchez. He was arrested a few days later.

Investigators have said Sanchez was a gang member who threatened people he knew at the Peppermill Place Apartments, about 25 miles northwest of downtown Houston. Prosecutors say Sanchez was taking hallucinogenic drugs in the days before the attack.
