JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jurors found a 27-year-old Florida man guilty of killing a 14-year-old girl who was attending a party.

Bryan Keefe Goggins Jr. was convicted of second-degree murder in the August 2016 death of Tamia “Mia” Alexandria Sanders.

Prosecutors said two women and a man were also injured in the shooting.

The teen’s family told investigators she was walking out of her home when gunfire erupted.

The Florida Times-Union reports Goggins acted as his own attorney during the trial, which began Tuesday.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 9.
