NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Newark man in the fatal shooting of three people outside an Irvington strip club on Christmas Day three years ago.

Twenty-two-year-old Anthony Fields faces life in prison for the killings outside Slick’s go-go bar.

Prosecutors said Fields opened fire outside the club after a disturbance at the door. Fields also was convicted of aggravated assault for the wounding of two other bar patrons.

Killed were 32-year-old bouncer Woodley Daniel, 34-year-old manager Pierre Clervoyant and 27-year-old Mushir Cureton.

Fields fled to Florida after the shootings but was captured at his mother’s home in Orlando in January 2014.

His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 27.
