MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A jury has found a man guilty of attempted murder and aggravated assault after he shot a FedEx truck driver two years ago.

The victim, Edwin Ray, told the court Keith Austin, now 47, was making threatening gestures toward him as they were driving in December 2014.

He said when they stopped at the intersection of East Holmes Road and Malone Road, he heard a loud bang, and then a bullet shot through his truck door and through his legs.

A witness saw Austin’s license plate, and police found and arrested him the next month.

In addition to his attempted second-degree murder and aggravated assault convictions, Austin was also found guilty on charges of employing a firearm in the commission of a dangerous felony.
