Man guilty in shooting at spring break house party

An Alabama man has been convicted of numerous counts of attempted murder in connection with the shooting and wounding of seven people at a Florida house party during spring break last year.

The Panama City News Herald (bit.ly/1QHnky5) reports that jurors deliberated for less than an hour Thursday before finding 22-year-old David Jamichael Daniels guilty of seven counts of attempted murder, as well as shooting into an occupied building.

The shooting prompted Panama City Beach officials to pass a series of emergency ordinances cracking down on the raucous party atmosphere that draws thousands of college and high school students each spring. The Panhandle town has long been known as a major spring break destination.

Daniels faces a punishment of life in prison at his sentencing, scheduled for March 18.
