Two men have been convicted of manslaughter in connection with a shooting death that happened in January 2012.

Darius Bursey and Van Cotton were convicted of manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the death of Lamar Shahid, 18.

Police say Shahid was shot in a home on Colombia Avenue in January after a fight.

Bursey and Cotton were facing murder charges but were convicted of the lesser charge. They face up to 25 years in prison at their June sentencing.

It's amazing how fast the last 25 yrs went.
