ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – A jury has returned a guilty verdict in the murder trial of a teenager accused of gunning down a Clayton County sheriff’s deputy.

Jonathan Bun was found guilty of 14 charges, including malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault of a peace officer, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Bun testified Thursday that he did not know that he shot an officer, despite telling investigators the opposite last year.

Fifty-five-year-old Deputy Richard “Rick” Daly was killed in the July 20 shooting after a traffic stop.

 

In August, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent testified at a court hearing that Bun said during questioning he was scared because he “had just shot a cop.”
