Two men were convicted Tuesday in the 2011 murder of a 13-year-old boy who was shot and killed in gang crossfire on a crowded South Side basketball court.
Aramis Beachem, 24, and Jamal Streeter, 21, were both convicted of first degree murder in the slaying of Darius Brown.
Brown was the unintended target of gunfire at Metcalfe Park that erupted Aug. 3 from a passing car. He was struck in the back.
Prosecutors say the two defendants and two others drove the park armed with handguns with the intention of shooting gang rivals who belonged to another Gangster Disciple faction.
Both defendants face up to 60 years in prison when they are sentenced.
A third defendant, Vito Richmond, is awaiting trial.
