SC man convicted of killing teen in car

Sep 10, 2010 9:20:00 AM - thestate.com
A South Carolina man has been sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of shooting and killing a teen as he sat in a car last year.

Multiple media outlets reported that 20-year-old Rashaun Sobers of Spartanburg was convicted Thursday after a jury deliberated about two hours.

Seventeen-year-old Sebastian Jaramillo of Spartanburg was shot and killed April 21, 2009.

Sobers testified he fired twice in self-defense when a mob approached his vehicle and a man tried to pull him out of the car.

A pathologist testified Jaramillo was shot in the back of the head.
