A suspected gang member has been convicted of killing a 17-year-old boy in Hayward three years ago over a stare down between the two.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports ( 23-year-old Robert Joseph Yim was found guilty Wednesday of second-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder. He is expected to be sentenced to at least 60 years to life in prison.

Authorities say Yim shot and killed Samuel Nava in May 2010. Yim was with his girlfriend and 1-year-old daughter at a park when a stare down ensued between him and Nava, who was sitting in a parked car with his friends.

Prosecutors say Yim grabbed a gun from a car and opened fire on the other vehicle, killing Nava.

Yim still face a separate murder charge for the 2007 slaying of a teen.
