Elderly Man Convicted of Attempted Murder

A Gregg County jury took only an hour to find an elderly man guilty of attempted murder.

73-year old Dock Earnell Sheffield faces up to 20 years in prison, for shooting his cousin in a Kilgore neighborhood, according to reports.

Sheffield's defense claimed his gun accidentally fired as his cousin got out of his car. Jurors rejected that claim and handed Sheffield a guilty verdict.
