A man in Minnesota accused of shooting a man to death following a dispute over the position of a passenger-side car seat was found guilty after a jury deliberated for 11 hours, according to authorities.
A criminal complaint obtained by the outlet shows a witness said the shooting victim was a passenger in his vehicle. According to the witness, he and Akubar drove to a gas station in Eagan, where a person from another vehicle that had arrived got into the witness’ backseat.
According to the complaint, the man that got into the vehicle and Akubar, who was in the front seat, got into a dispute about the position of Akubar’s seat. All three men exited the vehicle and an assault occurred.
At that point, court documents state, the defendant, Ahmed, got out of the car that had arrived and shot Abukar, fatally striking him in the head.
A date has not yet been set for Ahmed's sentencing hearing.
