Man convicted in 2011 murder of young mother

A jury has convicted a Bronx man for his role in a 2011 shooting that killed a young mother. 



According to prosecutors, Yaritza Pacheco was walking down East 174th Street three years ago when she was hit in the neck by a stray bullet. 



They say Jeffrey Ramirez had been chasing a man named Leonard Shoulders and firing a gun at him. Shoulders was only grazed, and it was all caught on surveillance video. 



Ramirez now faces up to 25 years behind bars when he's sentenced in February.
