DETROIT (AP) _ A man who told authorities he shot an Arab-American to death partly out of anger over Sept. 11 was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder.

A jury took 3 1/2 hours to find Brent Seever guilty. Seever, 38, faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Police said Seever had been stalking his ex-girlfriend when he shot her boyfriend, Ali M. Almansoop, in front of her Lincoln Park home Sept. 19. The 44-year-old Almansoop emigrated from Yemen more than 30 years ago.

Seever told investigators he had become angry from watching TV coverage of the terrorist attacks.
