NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Authorities say two men have been convicted of manslaughter in connection with a 2011 shooting at a birthday party in Queens.
District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced the convictions of Oneil Mairs and Nicholas Allen on Friday.
The men had to be physically removed from the party after Mairs got into an argument with his girlfriend and slapped her.
Once outside, the men banged and pushed on the door.
The victim, Avalisa Morris, placed her back against the door on the other side.
Gunfire erupted. Two bullets went through the door. Morris was struck in the head and died.
“All this shooting and people dying, I don’t know what it’s all about,” neighbor Cory Johnson said in 2011.
The defendants face up to 15 years in prison when they were sentenced on Dec. 16.
