Jury convicts man for shooting at Chandler police officer

PHOENIX — A man who fired at a Chandler police officer last year was
found guilty of attempted second-degree murder.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 51-year-old Steven Ramirez Hernandez also was
convicted of aggravated assault, disorderly conduct with a firearm, endangerment
and misconduct involving weapons.

Jurors also found aggravating circumstances of the crime after a two-week
trial.

Hernandez was scheduled to be sentenced June 24 and could face as many as 99
years in prison.

Authorities said Hernandez went to Chandler Regional Medical Center armed with a
handgun and got into a confrontation with his daughter’s boyfriend in the nursery on May 8, 2013.

Police were called and a responding officer was shot at by Hernandez.

The officer wasn’t hit and fired back, wounding Hernandez in the arm.
