LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A man accused of firing multiple shots at a Lubbock Police Officer has been found guilty, and is leaving his sentencing in the hands of a jury.

In court Friday, Gonzales took the stand along with his mother and sister asking the jury to give the minimum sentence. While on the stand Gonzales still claimed he was never involved in the shooting and that he is a changed man.

 In 2006, Michael Gonzales fired multiple shots at Officer Marcus Wall, who was on duty at the time.

Officer Wall told jurors he spotted two suspicious men in dark clothes and tried to make contact. Before he was able to get out of his unit, Officer Wall took cover from gun-shots.

Jurors saw pictures of his patrol car with multiple bullet holes. This was Officer Wall's second time to take the stand in a trial related to the incident.

In 2008, he testified against another defendant, Juan Zuniga, who jurors found guilty and sent to prison for 30 years.

Court will reconvene Wednesday at 9 a.m. The jury will hear closing arguments and then decide Gonzales' sentence. Gonzales faces a minimum of 15 years to a maximum of 99 years or life in prison.
