ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul teen has been sent to prison for life for killing a man who confronted him about his aggressive driving.

Nineteen-year-old Aloeng Vang was convicted of first-degree murder and second-degree intentional homicide by a judge in Ramsey County Tuesday. Vang was immediately sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports prosecutors say Vang was angry about a confrontation with Jeffrey Elling last September. Vang nearly struck Elling and his girlfriend as he turned into Elling's street at a high rate of speed. Elling confronted Vang and pushed him to the ground.

Prosecutors say Vang got a gun and later rang Elling's doorbell, hid behind a tree and shot Elling when he answered the door.
