Guilty verdict in murder of Darrent Williams

Suspected gang member Willie Clark has been found guilty of murder in the shooting death of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams.

A Denver jury returned the verdict Thursday after deliberating for a day and a half.

Williams was killed on New Year's Day 2007. Prosecutors said Clark fired the fatal shots from an SUV that pulled up beside a rented limo carrying Williams and some friends.

Prosecutors said Clark was angry over an altercation involving friends of Williams and friends Clark that occurred in a nightclub just before the shooting.

Defense attorneys said Clark is being made a scapegoat and wasn't even in the SUV.
