Jury convicts man charged with shooting at police

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A 48-year-old man has been found guilty of trying to shoot a suburban Detroit
police officer.
The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak reports (http://bit.ly/RW9CfB ) Thursday that a circuit court
jury in Pontiac returned its verdict of
assault with intent to murder Wednesday against Scott Currie of
Clawson.
Currie also was found guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon and other gun charges stemming from the
July 2013 incident.
Clawson
police were responding to a 911 call from Currie’s home when a shot was
fired from the front porch at an officer. Police said Currie went back
inside the house, but came out later and fired another shot into the
air. He was arrested after a two-hour standoff.
Currie is scheduled to be sentenced on June 5.
