SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - The man charged with shooting and killing a bartender at an American Legion post in December 2018 has been found guilty.

A jury convicted 59-year-old Bruce Bennett of the crime.

Bennett allegedly drove on the walkway in front of the building and parked right in front of the American Legion doors, according to his indictment.

Bennett then went inside, and when a group of people tried to keep him there until police arrived, he pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Theodore Braun, 25, was shot and killed.

Bennett is scheduled to be sentenced March 13.
