A jury found the 50-year-old Tuckahoe man accused of shooting his former boss outside a Chappaqua deli last summer guilty of second-degree attempted murder Tuesday.
Medical researcher Hengjung Chao shot Dr. Dennis Charney outside Lange's Deli with a 20-gauge shotgun last year. Charney suffered serious injury but survived.
Chao was also found guilty of first-degree assault, and criminal use of a firearm.
In court, prosecutors showed surveillance pictures of the shooting.
Charney is the dean of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where Chao worked until he was fired for alleged data manipulation.
The defense argued that Chao shot Charney to raise awareness about the latter's alleged medical fraud. Jurors rejected that argument after just over an hour of deliberation.
Chao wiill face up to 25 years in prison at his sentencing in August. His attorney said he would appeal the conviction.
