NASSAU, Bahamas – A jury in the Bahamas on Friday convicted a 19-year-old man of attempted murder in the 2008 shooting of a New Jersey police officer who tried to prevent a robbery while on vacation.

Ebenezer Sherman is expected to be sentenced in November. His lawyer, Godfrey Pinder, says he will appeal the verdict.

The jury found another suspect, 23-year-old Bradley Saunders, not guilty in the shooting. Jurors convicted both defendants of attempted robbery.

Authorities said Bergenfield policeman John Casper was shot in the chest when he tried to stop the two men from stealing a woman's purse. The shooting occurred as Casper and several relatives walked near the home of former Bahamian Prime Minister Perry Christie.
