Man Convicted For Role In 2010 Pizza Store Killing

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) — A 19-year-old Glen Burnie man has been convicted of first-degree murder for his role in a fatal shooting at a pizza shop two years ago.

Shawn Anthony Johnson also was found guilty of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and related charges Thursday. Police say Johnson was one of four teenagers who tried to rob Mr. Wings & Pizza in Glen Burnie, where Misael Flores was fatally shot, in November 2010.

One entered an Alford plea to second-degree murder earlier this month. A third pleaded guilty in January, and a fourth defendant is scheduled for trial in the fall. Johnson faces life in prison without parole at his sentencing next month.

Defense lawyers say they will seek a shorter sentence that allows for Johnson to enter a prison treatment program.
