DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - A jury has convicted Lamont Pride of second-degree murder in the death of NYPD Detective Peter Figoski.

Figoski, a West Babylon resident, was shot to death during a botched robbery at a Brooklyn apartment back in December 2011.

Pride was also found guilty of burglary and aggravated manslaughter. He was cleared of a first-degree murder charge.

PBA President Patrick Lynch and Figoski's family were hoping Pride would be convicted of first-degree murder, a charge that allows the judge to sentence him to life without parole.

Pride is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 28. He faces 25 years to life in prison.
