Night club guard found guilty of shooting three people
A Portsmouth man was found guilty of shooting three people in a fight in Virginia Beach in May of last year.
Lester Belmar was working as a security guard at a night club called Hanger Nine.
A group of people who had been at the club got into a fight at a nearby 7-Eleven on Lynnhaven Parkway.
Multiple shots were fired, two people were hurt, and 20-year-old Darrel Spencer was killed.
Belmar’s attorney argued his client was shooting in self-defense.
Belmar will be sentenced on charges of second degree murder, malicious wounding and firearms charges in January.
He could spend up to 68 years in prison.
