JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville man was convicted of attempted murder Wednesday for shooting at a man following a dispute between their two girlfriends.

Corey Lydell Morman, 24, was convicted of attempted murder in the second degree and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Prosecutors said the victim and his girlfriend were loading items into their vehicle outside their apartment in June 2014 when Morman came out of his apartment, which was in the same complex, and got into a white truck.

Prosecutors said when Morman pulled up next to the victim, Morman fired multiple shots at him before leaving the scene.

The investigation revealed the incident stemmed from a previous dispute between Morman's girlfriend and the victim's girlfriend.

Morman now faces up to 45 years in prison.

He will be sentenced next week.
