SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Two Stockton men have been found guilty in the murders of two innocent bystanders who were killed in a shooting outside a Sacramento apartment building.

The Sacramento Bee reports that separate juries convicted Dominique Amos and Ronnie Brown III of second-degree murder this week. Amos also was convicted of attempted murder Wednesday for shooting a third victim in the arm.

Prosecutors say Amos and Brown drove to the Villa Capri Apartments in the Arden Arcade neighborhood in January 2010 to help friends and relatives who had been arguing with people there. A gunbattle broke out, and both men opened fire.

Stray bullets struck Eleea Langley Jr. and Marcus Thompson as they stood near the mailboxes.

Amos faces 114 years to life in prison, and Brown faces 80 years to life.
