Man Guilty of Attempting To Kill Florida WCO

MELBOURNE, Fla. -- A Melbourne man has been found guilty of six felonies in the shooting of a Florida Wildlife Commission Officer.

Prosecutors successfully presented their case against Christopher Eddy, 25, who shot FWC officer Vann Streety and spent two days eluding authorities in 2009.

Around 4:30 p.m. Friday, a jury returned a guilty verdict for attempted first-degree felony murder, attempted first-degree premeditated murder, aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer with great bodily harm and resisting an officer with violence, aggravated assault with a firearm and armed trespassing in a conveyance.

Eddy was pulled over by Streety in July 2009. He testified that the officer threatened to beat him, so he retrieved his handgun and shot at Streety 10 times. He said he stopped firing because he was afraid he would kill the officer, who was struck six times and critically injured.

Eddy could face up to life in prison when sentenced.

Well, now there's a "believable" defense: Stopped shooting after 10 shots, because he was afraid he might kill someone?

One more knucklehead off'n the streets.

I hope the suspected beating will be visited on this criminal many times during his incarceration.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
