PHOENIX (AP) - A jury has convicted a man in the fatal shooting of another man outside a Phoenix bar in 2004.

Sentencing for 42-year-old Adam Mena Angulo is set for March 2. He faces a maximum of 22 years behind bars.

Prosecutors say Angulo fired shots outside the bar after being told that another vehicle struck his car in the parking lot. Leo Chavez Jr. was hit in the gunfire and died.

Investigators say they exhausted leads and the time and the case went cold.

Phoenix police and the cold case unit of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office reopened it in 2012, finding witnesses who identified Angulo as the shooter.

A grand jury indicted him on a second-degree murder charge in October 2014.

Authorities say they’re still searching for other suspects.
