An admitted gang member who, Reno police say, shot and killed a man last summer has been convicted of first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon.
Jorge Romero shot Juan Bettencourt on the corner of Yori and Stoddard Streets on July 24th of last year. Bettencourt died 2 days later.
Bettencourt had no gang affiliation and authorities believe he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Sentencing is scheduled for August 27th.
