An Allegheny County judge on Wednesday found a Scott man guilty of first-degree murder for fatally shooting a man in Elmore Square in the Hill District.

Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Jill E. Rangos also found Tersaun Cole, 22, guilty of robbery, conspiracy and a firearms violation.

Cole was accused of shooting Teante Hill, 30, on Dec. 30, 2010 during a drug deal. Hill died the next morning at UPMC Mercy hospital of gunshot wounds to his neck, body and extremities, according to case documents.

Police said a witness told them she saw Cole and two unknown men approach Hill with guns. Moments later, she heard four gunshots.

Rangos will sentence Cole on June 13. He faces a mandatory life prison term.
