ONTARIO, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York man has been convicted of fatally shooting another man during an argument at the suspect’s home.
A Wayne County jury found 35-year-old Lee Thomas guilty last week of second-degree murder and related offenses in the shooting death of 34-year-old Brett Brookover. Prosecutors say the Ontario man killed Brookover in the driveway of his home on Oct. 6, 2015, during an argument about drugs.
The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that Brookover and another man went to Thomas’ home to sell drugs to Thomas’ girlfriend. Brookover was shot twice in the back and the other man was also shot at.
Thomas will be sentenced in July.
