SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man was convicted Wednesday of attempted murder and other charges, eight months after police said he shot his girlfriend.

According to the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office, a jury found 62-year-old Jeffrey Lamore Jones Sr. guilty of second-degree attempted murder, use of a firearm in a crime of violence, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, possession with the intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana and six other charges.

The charges stem from an incident that happened on Nov. 15, 2015. Prosecutors said that on that date, members of the Salisbury Police Department responded to the 400 block of Patterson Avenue for a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, officers found a woman who had been shot in the shoulder, according to prosecutors. Jones had ran away with the gun, cocaine, marijuana and close to $9,000. Prosecutors said Jones was found less than a block away, and officers discovered he had shot his girlfriend.

The woman, who was 50 at the time of the shooting, suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, according to Salisbury police.

Jones' sentencing date has not yet been announced.
