Jacksonville man convicted of a 2013 murder

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- According to a release from the State Attorney's office, Christopher Leon Anderson, 32, was convicted Thursday of murder in the first degree and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Anderson shot and killed 42-year-old Armando Jackson in May 2013.

Officers arrived at the scene and found Anderson being physically restrained by multiple witnesses and found Jackson, who had been shot several times. Jackson later died at a local hospital.

Investigators discovered that Jackson and Anderson had been at a party when Jackson asked Anderson if he knew a particular girl. They got into a fight and after being separated, Anderson returned with a gun and shot Jackson twice in the front and four times in the back and head.

Anderson faces life in prison and he will be sentenced the week of January 13.

Assistant State Attorneys David Thompson and Lee Smith prosecuted the case.
