A man accused of opening fire on a rival gang member in the first shooting on the USC campus in decades was convicted Monday of four counts of attempted murder.

The shooting escalated from feuding on Twitter with Hall, the City Section high school football player of the year in 2009 . On Halloween night, among a crowd waiting to enter a party, Spencer shot six times in Hall's direction with a black revolver.
