JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man was convicted in a 2009 deadly shooting that took place outside of Aqua Nightclub on the Southside.

A jury convicted Omar Santiago, 28, of the death of 26-year-old Jean Justo this week.

According to prosecutors, Santiago and Justo were at the Aqua Nightclub on Beach Boulevard when the two began to argue over an incident that occurred days before.

In Feb. 2010, the suspect was captured in Puerto Rico and brought back to Jacksonville to face the charges.

Santiago faces life in prison without the possibility of parole; he is set to be sentenced the week of March 10.
