DOVER, Del.- A Lincoln man could spend the rest of his life in prison after being convicted by a Superior Court jury of murdering a 20-year-old Smyrna man.

According to prosecutors, in May 2018, Ahmir Bailey and a co-defendant, 19-year-old Eugene Riley of Milford, got into an argument with Jameir Vann-Robinson, as Van-Robinson and a friend were leaving a house party on Mitscher Road in Dover.

During the argument, Bailey and Riley fired several shots, one of which fatally struck Vann-Robinson in the back, prosecutors said.

Additionally, the bullets used in the attack had been stolen from a sporting goods store a few days earlier, prosecutors said.

The jury convicted Bailey of first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, shoplifting and third-degree conspiracy.

A Superior Court judge also found Bailey guilty of possession of a firearm by a person prohibited and possession of ammunition by a person prohibited.

Bailey, who was barred from having a gun because of a juvenile adjudication for a violent crime, will be sentenced in January. 

Riley's trial is set to take place in December.
