2 Convicted In Killing Of Man Shoveling Snow For A Nonprofit

BOSTON (AP) - Two men who conspired to kill a rival gang member as he shoveled snow in Boston for a nonprofit that steers young people away from crime have been convicted of second-degree murder.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Donte Henley and 20-year-old Josiah Zachery were found guilty Thursday in the death of Kenny Lamour in February 2015.

Henley and the 21-year-old Lamour were on a snow shoveling crew overseen by Roca Inc. 

Although the men were members of rival gangs, they assured their supervisor they could work together peacefully.

Prosecutors say Henley texted Zachery, gave him a description of Lamour, and told him to bring a gun to the work site.

They say Henley shot Lamour in the head and fired one shot at a pursing police officer.

Sentencing is scheduled for Monday.
