A Bronx man who fired widely into a crowd, wounding a 15-year-old bystander, was convicted of assault Tuesday.

Tamarkqua (Brees) Garland, 34, was found guilty for the 2010 gunplay in Wakefield. He sprayed some half-dozen bullets from a .32-caliber gun during an argument, striking the innocent teen in his leg.

A jury convicted him Monday after six hours of deliberation following a three-week trial.

Garland is facing up to 25 years in prison for the top count of first-degree assault when he’s sentenced September 19, 2014.
