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.

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.
