SPOKANE, Wash. (April 26, 2013)--A rapper who goes by the name Lil Danger faces life in prison without parole after his conviction in a shooting that left another rapper dead at an after-concert party at a hotel in Spokane, Wash.
John Castro was convicted Thursday of second-degree murder in the November 2011 shooting of Jose A. "Junior" Solis, 21, a rapper from Moses Lake.
Castro, 28, has two previous convictions for violent crimes and faces a mandatory life sentence as a three strikes offender.
About a dozen sheriff's deputies lined the courtroom, separating friends and families of Castro and Solis, when the jury returned with the verdict.
