ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — An 18-year-old Rockville man is facing a minimum of five years in prison following his conviction in connection with a shooting at a Rockville Metro station.

Prosecutors say Tavares Harris provided a gun used by another teen in the May shooting. Harris was convicted Tuesday of first-degree assault and a handgun charge. The Washington Post reports that Montgomery County jurors deadlocked on the most serious charges, including attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Harris faces up to 45 years in prison at sentencing.
