TAMPA, Fla. -- A Tampa Bay area man has been convicted of fatally shooting his neighbor, despite claims of self-defense.
A Hillsborough County jury found 71-year-old Trevor Dooley guilty Monday of manslaughter. His sentencing is scheduled for January.
Authorities say Dooley shot 41-year-old David James at a Valicro park in September 2010. Dooley, who lived across from the park, was yelling at a skateboarder using a basketball court when James interceded.
Witnesses say Dooley flashed a gun, starting a struggle that left James dead. James' then-8-year-old daughter watched him die.
Dooley testified he had no interest in a physical confrontation and only shot James because James was choking him.
