RAPID CITY, SD -
A Rapid City man has been convicted of attempted murder in a shooting last December outside the Lakota Nation Invitational basketball tournament.
Jurors deliberated about three hours Thursday before finding 20-year-old Simon Torres guilty. He faces up to 25 years in prison when he's sentenced later this month. Authorities have said Torres shot and critically injured Shane Bordeaux outside the tournament.
Another man, 21-year-old Joel Little, pleading guilty earlier this year to a charge of accessory to aggravated assault in the shooting. He was sentenced to 70 days in jail and five years of probation under a plea agreement.
