A McKeesport man was convicted Friday of killing a teenager and injuring seven others at a “Sweet 16” birthday party in Duquesne.

A jury of eight women and four men found Quentin Ingram, 27, guilty of third-degree murder, carrying a firearm without a license and seven counts of recklessly endangering another person.

The jury deliberated for several hours spread over two days.

The trial before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Donald E. Machen began Monday.

Chief Trial Deputy District Attorney Daniel Fitzsimmons said Ingram targeted Drew Henderson-Bracey, 18, when he opened fire in the basement of a house on South Fifth Street on Dec. 18, 2011.

Bracey was shot seven times, including three shots from close range, and died at the scene. Six teens sustained superficial gunshot wounds and a 15-year-old girl was hospitalized and later released.

No date has been set for Ingram's sentencing.
