SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A man who worked as an Oregon Department of Corrections officer was found guilty Wednesday in Salem of shooting at two police officers.  

Michael Wilson Yann was taken into custody in Marion County Circuit Court.  

The Statesman Journal reports the 40-year-old Turner man will be sentenced Dec. 11 for attempted aggravated murder and unlawful use of a firearm.  

Yann had been drinking April 14 when the two officers responded to a report he was staggering down a road.  

Police say he ran inside his house and fired several shots at the officers. He surrendered after a four-hour standoff.
