BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - A jury has found a 19-year-old man guilty of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a Florida Atlantic Student during a robbery.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2gFvNpp ) reports that Donovan Malik Henry was also convicted Monday of robbery and burglary with a firearm.

Prosecutors say Henry and two others were responsible for the death of 19-year-old FAU student Nicholas Acosta in December 2015. Acosta was shot after he and his girlfriend were ordered to the ground in their off-campus housing.

Also charged were 23-year-old Rodrick Demetrius Woods and 22-year-old Alexander Eddie Gillis.

Henry is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 19.
