DENVER (AP) - A Denver man will be sentenced to life in prison without parole after he was convicted of fatally shooting a Sudanese war refugee in 2011.

The Denver Post reported Thursday (https://goo.gl/v6T8l6 ) that 30-year-old Brandon Jackson was found guilty of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy and being an accessory to a crime. The charges stem from the Dec. 26, 2011, death of 43-year-old Yuon Malual, who was shot outside of his apartment complex.

Jackson and four other men associated with the Crips gang were indicted in connection with Malual’s death. The men were allegedly trying to settle a feud with a rival gang when they mistakenly shot and killed Malual, who was returning home from his job as a city bus mechanic.

Malual had a wife and five children.
