Guilty Verdict in Attempted Murder Trial

HAZLETON -- A man charged with shooting a friend in the face in Hazleton has been found guilty.

A jury found George Salata guilty of attempted murder and aggravated assault Wednesday afternoon.

Police say he opened fire on the victim in early 2017 after the two got into an argument over a woman.

Officers later followed Salata's footprints to his home in Hazleton where he surrendered after a stand-off.
