Texas: 4 convicted for roles in 2016 armored car guard death
HOUSTON (AP) - Prosecutors say four Houston men face up to life in federal prison for their roles in the 2016 slaying of an armored car guard during an ATM robbery.
Jurors on Friday convicted Nelson Alexander Polk, Marc Anthony Hill, John Edward Scott and Bennie Charles Phillips Jr.
All were convicted of attempted interference with commerce by robbery and aiding and abetting discharge of a firearm during a violent crime. Hill and Polk were also convicted of aiding and abetting interference with commerce by robbery and aiding and abetting discharge of a firearm during a violent crime causing a death.
Guard David Guzman was fatally shot in August 2016. Prosecutors also linked the four to a months-later attempted ATM robbery in which another person, suspected of shooting Guzman, was killed by officers.
