PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man who wasn't supposed to have guns because of his juvenile court record and mental health issues has been convicted of first-degree murder in a western Pennsylvania bar shooting.
Twenty-six-year-old David Mazzocco, of Imperial, faces a mandatory life sentence when he's sentenced Feb. 16.
He was convicted Thursday in Allegheny County in the March 11 shootings at the Fort Pitt Inn, also in Imperial, in which two others were wounded. Mazzocco was convicted of killing 29-year-old James Adams, before another patron subdued Mazzocco.
Sixty-year-old Gloria Mazzocco is scheduled for trial Dec. 9 on charges she loaned her son two guns used in the shootings. Investigators contend she told them she gave the guns to her son so he could show them to someone who wanted to buy them.
She has pleaded not guilty.
