Attempted Murder Verdict

A Vernon man has been found not guilty of attempted murder in a shooting in Polson Park almost three years ago.

Thirty-one year-old Jacob Lowes was accused of the shooting following an attempted robbery at the Green Valley Motel in August, 2014.
    
The judge said yesterday there was evidence that Lowes chased the man into a park with a gun, but not enough proof he intended to kill him.  Lowes was found guilty of assault and four firearms-related charges.  He'll be sentenced later this year.
