Shooter in the Richard Collier Case Found Guilty

Pro Football Talk reports that the man who shot Jags OL Richard Collier last year has been found guilty of attempted first degree murder

Tyrone Hartsfield has been found guilty of attempted first degree murder in the shooting of former Jaguars offensive lineman Richard Collier.

The six-person jury found Hartsfield guilty after a deliberation of two hours and 45 minutes. Hartsfield could be sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors said Hartsfield followed Collier’s car from a nightclub and shot him as revenge for Collier knocking Hartsfield out in a nightclub fight in April.

Collier was set to enter the 2008 season as the Jaguars’ left tackle before he was shot on September 2 of that year. The shooting left Collier paralyzed from the waist down, and one of his legs was amputated. Collier was in court Thursday and watched the reading of the verdict, sitting in his wheelchair.
