TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson man already serving a prison sentence in an unrelated case now has been convicted in a fatal 2017 shooting.

Pima County prosecutors say 24-year-old Isaac Cisco is scheduled to be sentenced for a murder conviction on Feb. 25.

A jury on Thursday found Cisco guilty of first-degree murder and four aggravated assault charges in the April 2017 incident.

Cisco was accused of shooting three people multiple times as they sat in a car outside an apartment complex.

Authorities say 28-year-old Angel Valenzuela died from his injuries while two teenage victims survived.

Tucson police say Cisco was arrested weeks later with a handgun on the driver-side floorboard of his vehicle.

Authorities say Cisco was prohibited from possessing a gun and the weapon was ultimately connected to the shootings.
