BOULDER — A jury has found a former Denver Bronco accused of shooting a woman in the shoulder in 2019 guilty of attempted first-degree murder.
The trial of Justin Bannan got underway Aug. 30 and ended Friday, 9News reported. The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office said a jury also found Bannan guilty of attempted second-degree murder and two assault charges.
Bannan was accused of shooting a woman at a Boulder business while in a drug-induced state where he claimed the mafia was after him, according to an arrest affidavit. The victim suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to her right shoulder, according to Boulder police. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
Sentencing is set for Nov. 5.
Bannan, a 12-year NFL veteran, played defensive tackle for the Broncos in 2010 and 2012. He also played for the University of Colorado Buffaloes from 1997 to 2001.
