Burlingame man convicted in shooting of friend 

A 28-year-old Burlingame man has been convicted of shooting his friend to death.

A San Mateo County Superior Court jury found Teyseer Najdawi guilty on Tuesday of first-degree murder. A judge must now decide whether Najdawi was sane at the time. A hearing on that question is set for Thursday.

Prosecutors say Najdawi shot his friend, 27-year-old Jack Chu, 11 times in the head on a Millbrae street in 2008 after the two had been out drinking in San Francisco. Deputy District Attorney Al Giannini did not present a motive for the shooting, telling jurors only that Najdawi was intent on killing someone that night.

Najdawi then allegedly left the body in an abandoned car.

He was also convicted of attempted murder and assault in connection with an attack on his cell mate.
