JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 31-year-old Jacksonville man was convicted Thursday evening for the 2011 murder of a 21-year-old man.

Ivan Webb was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Kenneth Chatman. He was also convicted of aggravated fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

In April 2011, a fight broke out inside Tiffany's Gentleman's Club on Philips Highway. As the commotion moved outside to the parking lot, Webb pulled out a gun and fired several shots, one of which killed Chatman, prosecutors said.

They said Webb then threw out the weapon while fleeing the scene.

Officers followed Webb, which resulted in a high-speed chase. The pursuit eventually ended after Webb crashed his vehicle and was apprehended.

Webb now faces life in prison as a habitual felony offender. He will be sentenced the week of Dec. 15.
