A Palm Beach County jury late Wednesday convicted Tyrell Deonville of second degree murder and attempted murder charges in connection with the shooting that killed a 50-year old man in a 2013 Lake Worth drug deal gone wrong.

Deronville, 28, was charged with first degree murder in the death of Gary Colt and and attempted murder for the same shooting that left 56-year-old

According to arrest reports, an altercation broke out between the men after Deronville arrived to deliver $40 worth of crack cocaine to a home when Colt and Parker were staying. It was then, prosecutors said, that Deronville pulled out a semiautomatic weapon and fired at both men, killing Colt and hitting Parer in both ankles.

Aside from second degree murder and attempted murder, jurors on Wednesday also convicted Deronville on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Deronville faces life in prison on the charges when he is sentenced Oct. 21.
