OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — An Oakland man has been found guilty of first-degree murder for shooting and killing his friend during an alcohol and cocaine-fueled argument over the existence of God.

The Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1fxlY2g ) 33-year-old Douglas Yim was also found guilty Tuesday of assault with a firearm and mayhem for shooting a second friend in his living room two years ago.

Yim killed 25-year-old Dzuy Duhn Phan after a night of partying and playing video games. Another friend, Paul Park, testified the two men had engaged in a heated discussion about God.

Yim became enraged and grabbed his gun after Phan asked Yim where God was when Yim's father died of a stroke several years earlier.

Yim shot Phan at least six times. Park was also hit by a bullet.

Yim faces 126 years to life in prison.
