Several Stampeder players were celebrating a win over Winnipeg at a local watering hole when disagreement over a spilled drink escalated outside the bar. Shots were fired and Hicks was hit twice and died in hospital.

Several witnesses, including Hicks’ teammates, identified Lugela as the man holding the gun.

Sentencing is set for May 30.
