During the trial, prosecutors contended the two men were members of a gang who drove up to the park and opened fire on members of a rival gang faction. Prosecutors say at least nine shots were fired and that one bullet struck Darius Brown of Chicago in the back, killing him.

The two men each face a maximum sentence of 60 years in prison. A third defendant is awaiting trial.
