CLARKSBURG — A Harrison County jury deliberated about seven hours before convicting a 50-year-old Clarksburg man of two counts of felony wanton endangerment.
The defendant was acquitted of misdemeanor assault.
Wesley Shawn Malcomb was accused by Deputy Zach Mealey of pointing a handgun at two individuals. This happened at the Spelter fire house and was captured on videotape, according to Harrison Assistant Prosecutor James Armstrong.
Malcomb, through attorney Garth Beck, had argued self defense.
The event occurred during an alleged vehicle exchange, Armstrong said.
Both victims testified for the state.
The defendant, a Harrison County school bus driver, has been suspended without pay since his arrest.
He could face a total of two to 10 years in prison when Harrison Circuit Judge John Lewis Marks Jr. imposes sentence on Dec. 11.
