Reading man guilty of murder in shooting outside restaurant

READING, Pa. - A Berks County jury has convicted a Reading man of all charges, including first degree murder, for a shooting that killed one man and wounded another.

The jury announced its verdict for Luis Miguel Navedo around 2:30 p.m. Friday, concluding a trial that began Monday.

Navedo shot two men in the parking lot of the Jet Set restaurant on South 9th Street in Reading on Sept. 3, 2012.

One of the victims, Jose Rivera, 27, was killed by a gunshot wound to his chest; the other victim suffered a wound to his arm.

The shooting, police said, followed a fight that started inside the restaurant.

Navedo was later arrested in Puerto Rico and extradited to Pennsylvania to face charges.

A sentencing date has not yet been set.
