A former College Station resident has been found guilty of pointing a gun at a Brazos Valley sheriff and threatening to kill him. It took jurors a little over two hours Friday to convict Dwight Rabe of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer.

Rabe was on trial for an armed standoff with authorities that took place in Franklin in March, 2007. The prosecution said during the ordeal, Rabe came out of the house, pointed a gun at Robertson County Sheriff Gerald Yezak and threatened to kill him if he didn't leave. The standoff ended when authorities stormed the residence and arrested Rabe.

The punishment phase of the trial is set to begin Tuesday, 9:30 a.m. in Franklin.
