N.Y. man who shot cops with Uzi acquitted
By Adam Pincus
NEW YORK — A convicted gunman charged with firing an Uzi assault rifle at two police officers outside a Flatbush nightclub in 2006 was acquitted yesterday of first-degree attempted murder and assault and was instead convicted of only a weapons charge.
Jurors in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn found Damian Henry, 26, guilty of criminal possession of a weapon but were not convinced of the more serious charges in the Jan. 21, 2006, incident. Police shot him 18 times in a barrage of 30 bullets, his defense attorney said, but he survived the attack.
