A Circuit Court jury on Wednesday found a San Francisco man guilty of gunning down Joseph Peneueta in Chinatown in March 2009.

Iosefa Pasene, 26, was on trial for second-degree murder and a firearm charge. He was found guilty on both counts.

It was the third trial for Pasene. Previous juries could not reach verdicts on the charges against Pasene in July 2012 and September 2013.

Pasene’s cousin, Zorro Rye, was acquitted in connection with Peneueta’s murder.
