TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Pima County jury reached a mixed verdict in the trial of a man arrested following a near-deadly shooting of a Tucson Police officer.

A jury Monday found Ricky Mendoza guilty of burglary and weapons charges, but not guilty of aggravated assault in the shooting of Sgt. Bob Carpenter, who was struck in the head on Nov. 18, 2012 as he and other officers investigated a burglary call.

Sgt. Carpenter underwent emergency brain surgery following the shooting and has since made a near full recovery.

Mendoza's trial lasted about a week. He's scheduled for sentencing next month.
