SALISBURY, Md.- A man was convicted of attempted second-degree murder Wednesday in connection with a shooting that occurred in Fruitland last October, according to the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office.

Clifton R. Salaam, 30, of Fruitland,was found guilty by a Wicomico County Circuit Court jury of the attempted murder charge in addition to charges of first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence, wear carry and transport a handgun and firearm possession by a prohibited person.

The conviction stems from a shooting at 214 Green St. on Oct. 13, 2013. At the time, investigators said Salaam and the victim were in an argument, when Salaam pulled out a small handgun and fired it several times, hitting the victim once in the abdomen.

The victim was treated for approximately two months at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury.

Sentencing for Salaam has been deferred to a future date.
