Man found guilty in deadly shooting


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – After two weeks of testimony a jury has convicted a man in a deadly shooting.

William Pagan-Rivera was found guilty Monday of murder and several other charges.

In November 2010, Rivera shot and killed Dwayne Johnson at an apartment near Chico and General Arnold northeast.

Witnesses told police it happened after Rivera showed up to Rob Johnson.

Police believe the murder was triggered by a drug dispute.

Rivera now faces 30 years in prison when he is sentenced in May.
