A suspected MS-13 member from Hempstead was found guilty of murder for a Queens shooting.

Jose "Smoker" Alvarenga shot another suspected gang member outside of a deli in 2017.

The jury took just three hours to convict Alvarenga, 29, of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Alvarenga is set to be sentenced later this month.

He faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
