MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison teenager has been found guilty of killing a man during a gang war in 2011.

A Dane County jury delivered the verdict for, 19-year-old Demitrius Matticx, who was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of first-degree reckless endangerment in a parking lot shooting that killed 20-year-old Jonathan Wilson.

Matticx faces a mandatory life sentence.

A judge will decide whether the teen will be eligible for supervised release.

The State Journal (http://bit.ly/13orLAM) reports prosecutors say Matticx brought a loaded shotgun to a gang meeting before the shooting and told others afterward that he had shot and possibly killed someone.
