FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting an ice-cream truck driver in Maryland while children waited in line has been convicted of first-degree murder.

The Frederick News-Post reports (https://bit.ly/29A6Je6 ) that a Circuit Court jury deliberated about 75 minutes on Thursday before convicting 28-year-old Larnell Lyles.

Lyles was charged in the June 2015 slaying of 22-year-old Brandon Brown outside a subsidized housing complex in Frederick.

Another worker in the truck had told police the shooting was unprovoked. But an attorney for Lyles said last year that Brown had been stalking and harassing Lyles for months over a $20 debt.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 8.
