Colorado man convicted for shooting at police car
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Colorado man has been found guilty of attempted murder for shooting at a police officer’s car.
The Weld County District Attorney’s office said Friday that jurors convicted John Lockhart of second-degree attempted murder.
The office says Lockhart was tried on the same count in March but a mistrial was declared after that jury could not reach a unanimous decision.
According to prosecutors, a Milliken police officer tried to pull Lockhart over in June 2017 for driving 115 miles per hour (185 kph) in a 55 miles per hour (88 kph) zone. They say Lockhart did not stop and during the chase fired at the officer’s car three times.
The officer was not hurt. A judge is scheduled to determine Lockhart’s sentence on July 30.
