A jury has convicted a man of first-degree murder for a fatal shooting at a Minneapolis gas station in 2010.

Jurors Monday also convicted 23-year-old Ryedelle Loving of two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Loving was found guilty in a July 25, 2010, shooting at the Old Colony gas station that killed Gilbert Jordan and injured two others.

According to the complaint, the three victims were at the gas station when a car drove up and parked at the pumps. The car drove away but returned, and the driver fired at the three men.

The trial was postponed by Loving as he changed lawyers and then when he decided to argue he shot the men in self-defense.

Loving faces an automatic life sentence without parole when he's sentenced Nov. 7.
