Nashville men found guilty in 2009 murder

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

After deliberating for almost five hours, a Davidson County jury found two Nashville men guilty in a 2009 murder.

DeAndre Rucker and Quincy Sharpe were convicted of first-degree pre-meditated murder on Thursday. The two men will spend at least 51 years in prison before being eligible for parole.

Demetrius Riley, 27, was shot and killed in 2009 while walking to his mother's home.

Prosecutors say Sharpe was the gunman, while Rucker told him to commit the crime to gain status in a gang.
