SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - A southwest Florida teen faces a possible life sentence for fatally shooting a man he believed made an offensive comment to a female friend.

A Sarasota County jury found the teen guilty last week of second-degree murder with a firearm. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (https://goo.gl/PSP84k ) reports that his sentencing hasn’t been scheduled.

Authorities say 23-year-old Carlton Parhm and some friends had met with a woman in March 2014, and the woman later told her friends that Parhm had made a sexual comment about her.

One of her friends tracked down Parhm and fired into a vehicle the man was sitting in. Parhm’s body was later found on the roadside near Booker High School.
