NYC bouncer convicted of a third murder

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) -- A bouncer already sentenced to lengthy prison terms for two New York City murders has been convicted of shooting another man dead and wounding three others outside a Manhattan nightclub.

A jury on Friday found 32-year-old Stephen Sakai (suh-KEYE') guilty of murder, attempted murder and assault. He faces at least 15 years in prison at his Dec. 15 sentencing hearing. He is serving two sentences of 25 years to life in prison for the previous murder convictions.

Sakai testified he feared he would die during a fight outside a Chelsea nightclub in May 2006. Sakai said he took a gun off one of his four victims and started firing.

One of the injured was partially paralyzed.
