Man that shot Cortland police officer is found guilty on all charges

The man that shot a Cortland cop in March of 2020 has been found guilty of all charges.

Officer Chad Knapp was shot by Zachary Clark when responding to a domestic dispute call last March. Clark was convicted on 12 charges, one being attempted murder. Knapp was treated and released from the hospital after the incident.

Clark originally barricaded himself in his home the night of the shooting which led to a 12 hour standoff. His sentencing is scheduled for September.
