      Clarence Eugene of Annapolis found guilty of first-degree murder in fatal dice game shooting

      ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - An Annapolis man has been convicted of first-degree murder in a shooting after a dice game.

      Twenty-five-year-old Clarence Eugene Johnson III was also found guilty of attempted murder and other offenses Tuesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.

      Clarence Johnson was convicted of killing 33-year-old Joseph Johnson III of Brooklyn. The Johnsons were not related.

      Prosecutors say Clarence Johnson and Joseph Johnson were shooting dice on Dec. 12, 2012, in a home in Annapolis when Clarence Johnson asked for the money he had lost back.

      Authorities say when Joseph Johnson refused, Clarence Johnson left, came back with a gun and shot Joseph Johnson in the head.

      Prosecutors say Clarence Johnson also shot a woman, who survived.

      The Capital of Annapolis reports that a sentencing date has not been set.
