CO-OP CITY - A Bronx man has been found guilty of second-degree murder after a shooting spree in Co-op City left one man dead and another paralyzed.

Police say Paulino Valenzuela is a former employee in Co-op City. They say in a videotaped interview that he admitted to entering the basement of an apartment building and fatally shooting his former supervisor in the chest. He then shot two co-workers as he was fleeing the scene, police say.

Valenzuela turned himself in to Bronx Criminal Courthouse shortly after the shooting.

Prosecutors say he snapped after he lost a discrimination lawsuit against his former employer.

Valenzuela faces 25 years to life in prison and will be sentenced on May 5.
