A man could spent the next 15 to 30 years behind bars after being found guilty of a deadly shooting outside a bar in one of the trendiest areas in the city.

On Monday, jurors convicted Steven Miller, of Northeast Philadelphia, of third-degree murder in a shooting death at a restaurant in the trendy Northern Liberties section of the city last year.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports Miller, 24, showed no emotion as jurors announced the verdict in the June 2012 murder of 24-year-old Maurice Kimble on the patio of the PYT restaurant at the Piazza at Schmidt’s.

Miller was also convicted of firearms offenses but acquitted of first-degree murder, according to court records.

Police say Miller shot Kimble twice in the chest after an argument that started outside the  restaurant on Hancock Street.

Assistant District Attorney Richard Sax called the defendant “callous” and said he had “no remorse whatsoever” for the shooting, which he said happened after the victim made a pass at a woman Miller knew.

Defense attorney Samuel Stretton, who argued self-defense, said he would seek a sentence of 15 to 30 years when Miller is sentenced on Jan. 14.
