A Compton man has been convicted of killing one person and injuring four others in a drive-by shooting after a dispute over a woman, authorities said Thursday.

Joshua Anthony Blount, 24, faces life in prison without the possibility of parole at his sentencing on July 24 in the August 2006 shooting in Costa Mesa.

It occurred in an alley behind an apartment complex on Baker Street, where a man had earlier spat on the car of the unidentified woman who he believed was associated with a group that had assaulted a 13-year-old the day before.

The woman contacted Blount, who returned later and started shooting, killing Israel Maciel and wounding four others.
