A Circuit Court jury convicted a city man of first-degree murder and a handgun violation yesterday in connection with a shooting outside an East Baltimore carryout in December 2003.

Prosecutors said Martinez Brown, 26, of the 2300 block of E. Chase St., shot Kelvin Knight, 18, at point-blank range outside New Land Chinese Carry Out at Montford Avenue and Biddle Street.

Knight was killed after interrupting an argument between Brown and a woman. When Knight laughed at the couple, Brown said, "Do you think I am playing?" and placed the muzzle of a gun to Knight's forehead, prosecutors said.
