Michael Partlow was found guilty of terrorizing in Southeast District Court Friday evening.
Partlow was accused of pointing a shotgun at police officers called to his apartment building because of his suicide threats in an incident occurring at about 2:30 a.m. on Sept. 19, 2010. The officers fired on him, causing several wounds.
