NEW YORK (AP) - A man who killed an innocent Connecticut teen during a Bronx gang drive-by shooting has been convicted of manslaughter.

Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark announced the conviction of 23-year-old Reginald Goldman on Tuesday.

The victim, 16-year-old Tashawn Bromfield of Meriden, Connecticut, was killed in August 2010. The popular high school football player was visiting his father at the time.

Authorities said Goldman and others were riding around gang rivals’ neighborhoods trying to scare them.

Bromfield was socializing in a courtyard when Goldman yelled a gang-related phrase and fired two shots from a passing car.

The teen was struck in the spine, heart, lung and stomach.

Goldman faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced on June 1.
