SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A man was convicted of first-degree murder on Friday for shooting into a crowd during an underage dance party two years ago, killing one teen girl and injuring another.

Javionne Flenory-Davis, 21, was found guilty of murdering Lanajah Dupree, 14, and the attempted murder of Chanderea Melson, 16, on July 11, 2010. The jury also found true all firearm and gang allegations relating to both charges, according to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.

Flenory-Davis, a validated G-Mobb/Stick-up Starz gang member, was at an under-21 club event on Auburn Boulevard when he got into a brawl with rival gang members.

He ran to a nearby car, retrieved a 9mm handgun, went back to the area near the front of the club and fired six shots into the crowd of teenagers.

One bullet hit Dupree in the chest and exited her back. A second bullet hit Melson in the elbow and abdomen. Melson survived the attack, but Dupree died at the scene. Dupree was reportedly visiting friends from her home in Sparks, Nev.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 7.
