Konrad Schafer guilty in fatal Osceola County shooting spree

- A central Florida teen has pleaded guilty for his part in a 15-day shooting spree that included a fatal robbery.  Konrad Schafer, 18, pleaded guilty Friday to two adult counts of first-degree murder. He faces life in prison at his April 15 sentencing. 

Authorities say a then-15-year-old Schafer -- along with Juan Muriel, Victoria Rios and David Damus -- participated in the shooting spree in July 2013 that left two people -- 22-year-old Eric Roopnarine and 17-year-old David Guerrero -- dead and more than 20 houses and vehicles damaged.

Prosecutors say Damus killed Roopnarine. He was convicted of first-degree murder and armed burglary in June.  Muriel previously agreed to testify against the others in a plea deal guaranteeing he will serve 10 years instead of life in prison for murder.   Rios is still awaiting trial.
