A jury found a Rochester man guilty of shooting and killing a 15-year-old boy behind a city recreation center in 2005.

Tahj Anderson, who was 14-years-old at the time of the murder, was found guilty of second degree murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old Stacy Long. Long was shot and killed outside the Campbell Street Recreation Center on October 13, 2005.

The case remained cold for more than five years. Anderson, who is 22-years-old now, was arrested in this case just last year.

Anderson was tried as a juvenile offender because he was so young at the time of the shooting. He will be sentenced on September 19 where he faces up to 15 years to life in prison. Anderson is already serving 13 years in prison for rape and robbery conviction.
