A Baltimore man has been convicted by a city jury of second-degree murder and using a handgun in the commission of a crime in the shooting death of a 20-year-old man a year ago.

Leroy Young, 31, of the 2400 block of Loyola Northway was convicted of the May 14, 2005, fatal shooting of Terrence Smith in the 5000 block of Norwood Ave.

Smith, of the 5200 block of Bosworth Ave., was shot and killed while sitting in his car.

Assistant State's Attorney Brian M. Fish said the defendant had gotten into Smith's car and had tried to rob him when a struggle ensued.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Roger Brown is scheduled to sentence Young next month; he could receive up to 50 years in prison.
