Hillsborough man found guilty of 2nd degree murder

Tampa, Florida -- A Hillsborough County man has been convicted of second degree murder in a double shooting that killed one man and brought Plant City to a stand-still.

Francisco Rangel was arrested in December 2008 after a six hour manhunt and a shootout with police that left an innocent bystander dead.

Rangel's lawyers had argued that the 27-year-old originally fired in self defense when two men came to collect money from him at gunpoint.

Rangel still faces a separate trial on a long list of charges stemming from the following day's chase and police shootout.
He'll be sentenced on today's conviction on December 21st.
