A 35-year-old Baton Rouge man was convicted Friday of manslaughter in the 2011 shooting death of a man on Clayton Street.
Brandon Christopher Hickerson, who had a previous conviction for aggravated second-degree battery, also was found guilty on a charge of felon in possession of a firearm in the April 11, 2011, killing of Charles Everett Collins, 31.
The shooting occurred just after midnight outside the front door of a home in the 4500 block of Clayton, where a group of friends was standing, police have said.
Hickerson slapped a woman in the group on her buttocks and the woman pushed him, police said. Hickerson told the woman not to push him, and when she tried to push him again, Hickerson pulled out a gun and shot at the group of people, including the woman and Collins, police said.
Collins, a resident of the home, was killed.
State District Judge Bonnie Jackson is scheduled to sentence Hickerson on May 20.
