Taraus McKinley, 30, was convicted Friday of first-degree murder and felon in possession of a firearm. He was sentenced to life in prison.
According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report, McKinley shot and killed Anthony Martin, 34, in January 2018 after a fight inside the club.
Witnesses said McKinley waited for Martin to exit the club before shooting him several times in front of a large crowd of people.
Martin's sister and wife later identified McKinley as the man who shot him.
McKinley is the younger brother of former Hurricanes defensive back Randy Phillips.
