A man has been convicted of first-degree murder in Jefferson County for a shooting death.

William Robert Taft, 50, was convicted by a jury for the death of 41-year-old Michael Dean Bryan, the district attorney’s office said Friday.

On Oct. 24, sheriff’s deputies were called to 5080 McIntyre St. in Golden on a report of a shooting and they found Bryan lying outside a residence. Bryan was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Taft lived on the property where Bryan was found. The two men had been fighting when Taft shot Bryan, according to a DA’s news release.

Taft was also convicted of using a large capacity gun magazine during a crime and tampering with evidence. He will be formally sentenced, to life in prison, on July 30.
