   After several outburst during his trial, a St. Louis man has been found guilty in last year's shooting of a financial aid director at the Stevens Institute of Business & Arts in downtown St. Louis.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the jury Wednesday afternoon found Sean Johnson guilty of first-degree assault and armed criminal action while acquitting him of possessing a defaced firearm.

   The 35 year old was accused of shooting Greg Elsenrath at the business school in January 2013. Johnson, then a student at the school, was upset because his financial aid was drying up just as he was about to graduate.  

   Elsenrath was seriously injured, but did recover.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man accused of shooting the financial aid director of a downtown St. Louis business college has told a jury that he did it, ignoring the advice of his attorney.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Sean Johnson testified at his trial Tuesday. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree assault, armed criminal action and possession of a defaced firearm.
 
The shooting happened Jan. 15, 2013, prompting a lockdown at Stevens Institute of Business & Arts.
 
Johnson told the jury that he didn't intend to kill anyone. He says he was upset because his student loans were running out a few credits short of graduating.
 
Financial aid director Greg Elsenrath survived the attack.
