SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A 25-year-old man has been found guilty in connection to shooting at an Orange police officer during a psychotic episode.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/2aevIsI ) that on Wednesday a jury found Taylor Williams not guilty of attempted murder, but instead convicted him of attempted voluntary manslaughter, along with assault with a firearm on a peace officer and assault with a semi-automatic rifle.

Williams faces eight to 20 years in prison at sentencing, which is slated for Aug. 12.

According to court documents, Williams shot at a police officer in November 2015 after a family member called about a disturbance. Williams barricaded himself in a room and fired through the door before firing a gunshot into his head. The bullet bounced off his skull.

The police officer was not injured.
