A jury took less than three hours to convict Montrell Webster of killing a man shortly after he got off a Minneapolis bus in 2014.

Webster, 19, of Brooklyn Park, was found guilty of first-degree murder Wednesday. He shot Eulalio Gonzalez-Sanchez, 36, as he walked home from a bus on Sept. 21, 2014. Webster was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 30 years.

According to the criminal complaint, and testimony during the three-week trial, Gonzalez-Sanchez got off a bus about 6:15 a.m. and was shot dead less than 10 minutes later in the 2200 block of Seventh St. NE. His cellphone was missing but his wallet was near his body.

Several months later, Jeremiah Blackwell was arrested and charged in the shooting. Later, police obtained video from a Wal-Mart store which showed Blackwell, his father, brother and Webster buying ammunition for the murder weapon. Webster eventually admitted he was with Blackwell during the robbery and he fired the fatal shots.

Before Webster’s sentencing, victim impact statements were read by a victim/witness advocate written by Gonzalez-Sanchez’s girlfriend and sister. Both women described how the murder had devastated their lives.

Blackwell pleaded guilty to aiding an offender and is scheduled to be sentenced on April 7.
