A 22-year-old man was convicted by a Bucks County jury on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, of shooting at a group of people that included a 4-year-old child during a November 2019 encounter in Bristol Township.
Sysco Schruby, of Bristol, was found guilty of two counts of aggravated assault – attempting to cause serious bodily injury, a first-degree felony; two counts of aggravated assault – attempting to cause serious injury with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony; one count of carrying a firearm without a license, a third-degree felony; one count of possession of an instrument of crime, a first-degree misdemeanor; and six counts of recklessly endangering another person, a second-degree misdemeanor.
The guilty verdict comes at the end of a three-day trial before Commons Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley. Sentencing was deferred to a later date.
Charges were filed against Schruby in March 2021, following an investigation into the Nov. 22, 2019, shooting by Bristol Township Police Department, Bucks County Detectives, and the Bucks County Investigating Grand Jury.
