DAILYKENN.com -- Jerome Bernard Butler, 38, was convicted this week of fatally shooting Carl Talent, 45 in Sacramento, Calif.
Reports say Butler confronted Talent over a dispute regarding a bicycle.
A man accused of shooting another man following an argument over a bicycle has been convicted of second-degree murder.
A Sacramento County jury on Thursday also found Jerome Bernard Butler, 38, guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm in the death of Carl Talent, 45, of Roseville, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.
On Sept. 5, 2014, Talent was in front of Butler’s residence when he got into an argument with Butler’s girlfriend and her son over a bicycle. After Talent left the area, Butler’s girlfriend told Butler that Talent had threatened her son during the argument.
About 15 minutes later, Butler left his residence and saw Talent about a mile away, in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 2200 block of Hurley Way. The two men began arguing, and Butler pulled out a handgun and shot Talent twice, killing him.
