LOS AN­GE­LES » Prose­cu­tors say a man has been con­victed of fa­tally shoot­ing a jew­elry sales­man at a Los An­ge­les-area gas sta­tion nearly three decades ago.

The Los An­ge­les County District At­tor­ney’s Of­fice says Al­bert Clark faces 32 years to life in prison when he’s sen­tenced Jan. 10.

The 55-year-old found guilty Mon­day of one count of first-de­gree mur­der with an al­le­ga­tion that he used a hand­gun in the com­mis­sion of the crime.

Prose­cu­tors said Clark shot Leroy Gal­loway mul­ti­ple times as Gal­loway sold jew­elry out of his van parked at a Pasadena gas sta­tion on Feb. 27, 1988.

Clark was charged with the mur­der that same year but the case was dis­missed. It was re­vived in 2013 thanks to ad­vances in foren­sic anal­y­sis.
