GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Cave Junction man of assault and firearms charges for shooting a friend after a night of drinking, but acquitted him of attempted murder.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier (https://bit.ly/1tqp1CU ) reports 60-year-old gold miner Ronald Fehlhaber was accused in the shooting of 34-year-old Immanuel Day.

According to testimony, the two spent the evening of Memorial Day 2013 drinking and playing pool in the bar of the Junction Inn motel in Cave Junction.

Surveillance video showed Day jumping up and down, throwing fake punches at Fehlhaber, and throwing him to the ground.

Later in the parking lot, Fehlhaber shot Day, who was left paralyzed and using a wheelchair.

Fahlhaber’s lawyer argued it was self-defense.

The jury handed down its verdict Thursday. A sentencing date wasn’t set.
