Tucson man convicted in a 2010 fatal shooting

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man has been convicted of second-degree murder in
a 2010 fatal shooting.

Pima County prosecutors say jurors found 26-year-old Mario Hipolito Enriquez
guilty on Thursday.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 13.

Prosecutors throughout the trial accused Enriquez of lying to police and
concocting a cover story to downplay his involvement in the death of 74-year-old
William Herr in November 2010.

Authorities say Herr was shot four times with an AK-47 semi-automatic rifle and
Enriquez then fled to Mexico.

The Arizona Daily Star says Enriquez’s attorney claims
his client was defending himself when Herr was shot.
