A Florida man was convicted on Wednesday of second-degree homicide and firing a weapon in public.
This case was in connection to the May 9, 2020, murder of 29-year-old Alexander Antonio Nowell.
According to deputies, the murder took place at a bar called The Joint, located at 941 S. Delaney Ave. in Avon Park.
Two other men were wounded in the shooting, which stemmed from an earlier argument.
