BLOOMINGTON, Ind.– A man who police said carried out a shooting spree while naked near Indiana University’s campus in Bloomington last year was found guilty of several charges, including attempted murder.

Officers shot Hamersley once in each leg after they said he refused to drop his weapon.

According to the Bloomington’s Herald Times, Hamersley testified he took the drug LSD the night before the shootings and did not remember anything from the incident.

Hamersley’s sentencing date has not been scheduled at this time.  He is currently being held in the Monroe County Jail without bond.
