BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A 20-year-old Buffalo man has been found guilty of murder in an alleged gang-related shooting.

Marquille Spencer also was found guilty on Thursday of criminal possession of a weapon, but Supreme Court Justice Russell Buscaglia did not find him guilty of an assault charge in the non-jury trial.

Authorities said Spencer fatally shot 18-year old Joseph Daniels in October of last year as he was standing on a street corner in Buffalo. Daniels, who died at Erie County Medical Center, allegedly was a victim in a dispute over gang territory.

Spencer faces a maximum of 25 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced Feb. 15.

The conviction is the 37th non-vehicular homicide conviction obtained this year by the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.
