BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck man has been found guilty on one of three attempted murder charges that prosecutors say was the result of a gang shooting.

A Burleigh County jury deliberated over two days before reaching the verdict for Mason Schuh Friday afternoon. The 25-year-old Schuh faces up to 20 years in prison.

He was accused of firing multiple gunshots from one vehicle into another is what police say was a dispute between two rival gangs in April 2020. A juvenile in the other vehicle returned fire. No one was injured in the exchange of gunfire.

The driver of the vehicle in which Schuh was a passenger, Albert Crews, pleaded guilty to three counts of facilitation of attempted murder.

He was sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison and three years of probation. He was originally charged with attempted murder but agreed to plead guilty to lesser charges and testify at Schuh’s trial, the Bismarck Tribune reported.
