SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A jury on Wednesday found a 19-year-old South Bend man guilty of murder for his role in a shooting that took place nearly two years ago.

In April 2021, first responders were called to the 1500 block of S. Fellows Street for numerous shots fired. They found two teenage boys, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, suffering from gunshot wounds. They were both taken to the hospital, where 16-year-old Edwardo Rivera later died.

The suspect, identified as Danate Lowe, was found guilty of murder. The jury also found Lowe guilty of battery with a deadly weapon, which is a level 5 felony, and a firearm sentencing enhancement.

His sentencing is set for Feb. 27. The sentencing range for murder is 45 to 65 years. The sentencing range for a level 5 felony is one to six years. The sentencing range for a firearm sentencing enhancement is five to 20 years.
