EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Cottage Grove man has been found guilty of trying to kill three Lane County sheriff’s deputies outside a home last September.

One of the deputies, Todd Olson, was hospitalized after Carlos Roa shot him in the area of his groin and upper leg. The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/D66O88 ) that Olson embraced his wife in the courtroom after the unanimous verdict was announced Tuesday.

Roa could face decades in prison when he’s sentenced next week on three counts of attempted aggravated murder. He testified last week that he does not remember shooting at deputies.
