Clark will be sentenced Feb. 6, 2017.

The body of the 22-year-old Gann was found in a car near Interstate 10 and Cortaro Farms on March 23, 2015. Authorities said he died of a single gunshot to the head.

When Gann's body was found, Clark was already in police custody and charged with criminal damage in a neighborhood about a mile away from the crime scene.

"He didn't seem stable as far as his balance,” said a woman who witnessed Clark acting erratically outside her home. “He did seem to be kind of staggering."

A few hours later, authorities identified Clark a suspect in the shooting.

Authorities said Clark and Gann knew each other and the two, along with an unidentified third man, were seen together at a convenience story hours before the shooting.

Several sources told KOLD News 13 all three were friends and had been hanging out and likely drinking most of the night.
