ST. PAUL (WJON News) – A federal jury found a St. Paul man guilty of illegally having a gun following a shootout at a St. Paul bar.

Following a five-day trial, 41-year-old Anthony Deberry was convicted on one count of possession of a firearm as a felon.

A sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later date.

On the afternoon of September 18, 2021, Deberry got into a verbal altercation with a man inside Born’s Bar in St. Paul and, as a result, was kicked out of the bar and prohibited from re-entering. Deberry remained in the vicinity of the bar and at times continued to antagonize the man.

Later that evening, Deberry approached the bar, followed a group of men, and brandished a 9mm handgun with an activated laser site.

Shortly thereafter, gunfire broke out, including one shot fired by Deberry. Deberry suffered from multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Regions Hospital.
