A Bronx man was found guilty of attempted murder in Westchester last week for shooting a man inside a U-Haul van.

Jurors also convicted Jamil Fields, 56, of first-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon for the July 2017 attack, which left a man with gunshot wounds to his head, arm, and torso.

Police found the victim bleeding alongside Interstate-95 in Harrison, where passing motorists had stopped to care for him. He had been shot inside the van, and escaped as it drove down the interstate.

Fields, the renter of the van, was arrested four days after the shooting.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 3.
