A man who fired shots at Adams County sheriff’s deputies in 2017 was convicted Thursday of multiple charges, including attempted murder.
Troy Wayne Coen, 57, was convicted after a four-day trial on two counts of attempted first-degree murder with extreme indifference, two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of attempted first-degree assault and three counts of menacing, all felonies, according to the Adams County district attorney’s office.
On Sept. 27, 2017, Coen, armed with a gun, confronted and threatened neighbors about stealing marijuana grown in his backyard at 7762 Osage St., according to a news release.
Deputies were called to investigate, and Coen fired 10 rounds at Sgt. Chris Eye and Deputy Dustin Ball. The pair returned fire, hitting Coen in the abdomen. The deputies weren’t hit by gunfire. Coen was treated at a hospital and released.
Coen is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 17 in Adams County District Court.
