Childers was found not guilty of two counts of attempted first-degree murder. He was found guilty of two counts of attempted second-degree murder, two counts of felony property destruction, two counts of misdemeanor property destruction, reckless endangering and eluding.

The sentencing date for the co-defendants hasn’t been set at this time.
