VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -A guy was found guilty of participating in gunfire and a standoff with law officers in Volusia County in October 2021. The incident occurred back in 2021.
After a trial that lasted for four days, Joseph Jaynes, 27, was found guilty of six counts of attempted second-degree murder of a law enforcement officer.
The charges stemmed from a standoff that lasted for many hours and concluded with a firefight between Jaynes and authorities.
During a check on the resident’s well-being on October 3, Daytona Beach Police Department officers investigated a probable break-in at a residence.
According to a news statement, after they determined that there was no one present inside, the officers returned to their police vehicles.
The police said that they were summoned to the area many times throughout the weekend to manage conflicts that were taking place between Jaynes and his roommate.
After hearing a gunshot, the officers located Jaynes in a nearby timberline where he was hiding.
According to the court documents, he started aiming his rifle toward the cops after he was given many requests to down his weapon and then ignored those directions.
SWAT police were able to apprehend Jaynes outside of his vehicle after a standoff that lasted for many hours and included an exchange of gunfire. He got a wound on his leg from a gunshot.
During the event, there were no cops who sustained injuries.
On Friday, May 12, at 1:30 p.m., Jaynes is scheduled to have her sentencing hearing.
