    A Lowell, Massachusetts, man who opened fire at a crowded New Year's Eve party, killing one reveler and injuring seven others, has been convicted of murder.

    Jameson Phuon was convicted Monday after a two-week trial and five hours of jury deliberations of 32 charges in connection with the shooting in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2011.

    Prosecutors say Phuon and another man were kicked out of the party, but returned masked and armed to exact some revenge for being disrespected.

    Twenty-year-old Corinna Oeur was shot twice in the chest and died. The victims ranged in age from 14 to 20.

    The Sun reports
    that Phuon faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole at sentencing on March 17.

    Phuon's attorney said his client had been misidentified.
