Man convicted for shooting pregnant woman

Rochester, N.Y. -- A 24-year-old man is going to prison for shooting a pregnant woman in Rochester. 

A jury found Samuel Smith guilty of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and first-degree criminal use of a firearm.

Smith shot the 17-year-old pregnant woman in the abdomen in broad daylight on Danforth Street last May.

She and her unborn child survived, but remained at Strong Memorial Hospital for three weeks.

Prosecutors said Smith tried to kill the woman as revenge after the murder of another woman the week prior.

Smith will be sentenced in July.

He faces up to 30 years in prison.
