Man convicted in house party shooting

A 21-year-old Alexandria man has been convicted in the fatal shooting of a University of Maryland University College student at a party in Glenn Dale earlier this year, authorities said Tuesday.

Alusine Kanu was convicted of second-degree murder in the April 17 slaying of 23-year-old Oluseun Fashina, of Lanham, authorities said. Kanu shot Fashina, who was studying criminal justice at University of Maryland University College, in the back after a fight over spilled drinks at a house party in the 10800 block of Glenshire Drive, authorities said.

Kanu faces a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison at his February 23 sentencing, authorities said.
