MURRIETA (AP) — A former Riverside County sheriff’s deputy has been convicted of second-degree murder in the off-duty shooting of man in a Murrieta bar.

The district attorney’s office says a jury convicted 44-year-old Dayle William Long on Thursday and found true an enhancement that he discharged a firearm causing death.

Long was a 10-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department on Dec. 21, 2011, when the shooting occurred at Spelly’s Pub & Grille, where he had been drinking.

Officers responding to an 8 p.m. report of a man with a gun found Long, who identified himself as an off-duty deputy, and the body of a man.

Authorities say 36-year-old Samuel Vanettes of Winchester had been shot several times.
