RENO (AP) — A man accused of opening fire on his supervisors at a Reno Walmart store has been convicted by a jury of seven counts, but jurors could not reach a verdict on one attempted murder charge.

The jury late Tuesday found John Gillane guilty of two counts of attempted murder, three counts of battery with a deadly weapon, and one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed weapon.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports jurors were unable to agree if Gillane tried to kill one of his managers, Richard Sanders.

Sanders and two other managers — Richard Burns and Eric Hill — were wounded but survived the Oct. 29, 2010 attack.

During the trial, Deputy Washoe County District Attorney Elliott Sadler told jurors that Gillane was a bitter man who wanted to go out in what he called a “blaze of glory.”

Washoe District Judge Patrick Flanagan scheduled sentencing for Dec. 14.
