JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A West Tennessee man has been convicted in a 2012 nightclub shooting that left one man dead and 19 people injured.

A Madison County Circuit Court jury deliberated about 3 and a half hours before convicting 32-year-old Travis Steed of Jackson on Friday of second-degree murder, felony murder, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and attempted second-degree murder. He will be sentenced October 10.

The February 26, 2012, shooting at the now-closed Karma Lounge killed Lecarlos Todd, a Lane College student from Memphis. An exchange of gunfire inside the club also wounded 17 other people, most of them treated for injuries and released from hospitals. Two others were trampled when patrons bolted for exits.

Police said Steed pulled a handgun and attempted to shoot another person but hit Todd. Steed was shot and injured by patrons inside Karma who returned gunfire.
