Man Convicted Of Attempted Murder In Connection With A 2015 Shooting Of A YCSO Volunteer In Ash Fork

One of the three people arrested in the shooting of a Yavapai County Sheriff’s volunteer in Ash Fork in 2015 was found guilty Wednesday. Fifty-three-year-old Gregory Neidermeyer was arrested along with his 28-year-old son Jason and Gregory’s wife Maria, and charged with attempted second-degree murder, three aggravated assault charges along with two counts of misconduct involving weapons, criminal damage and drug charges. They are charged in the incident where Volunteer In Protection member Steve Edgar was shot three times, but managed to call for help. Edgar followed an ATV that was going at a high speed near Ash Fork. When the ATV stopped at a house he was ambushed by the family. Edgar got away from the scene. Jason was convicted of aggravated assault back in 2017. Gregory was found guilty of all counts and is expected to be sentenced on December 16th in Prescott.
