SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A 21-year-old man has been convicted
of murdering a 14-year-old Nevada girl at a party in Sacramento in
the summer of 2010.
A Sacramento Superior Court jury convicted Jaivonne
Flenory-Davis on Thursday of first-degree murder in the shooting
death of Lanajah Nachelle Dupree. The Sacramento Bee reports
that he is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 7.
Authorities say Flenory-Davis opened fire on a crowd of
teenagers exiting a party on July 11, killing Dupree of Sparks,
Nev., who had been visiting friends in the Sacramento area. The
gunfire also wounded a 17-year-old girl, who was shot in the arm.
An argument between gang members apparently sparked the
Sheriff's detectives have said they do not believe the victims
were the intended targets or involved in the dispute.
