MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Milwaukee man who opened fire on three Wauwatosa police officers has been sentenced to 54 years in prison and 35 years of probation.

Twenty-one-year-old Najee Harmon pleaded guilty last month to reduced charges stemming from the shooting outside a Milwaukee apartment complex on June 19, and from an earlier armed robbery.

The officers were investigating a Wauwatosa burglary when they spotted Harmon in a stolen car.

One of the shots hit detective Jeffrey Griffin, who suffered serious internal injuries. He has not yet returned to work, but may later this year. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1S8NpVx ) that he had Police Chief Barry Weber read a victim impact statement Friday, in which he spoke of his pain, surgeries, colostomy bag and fear.

Harmon told the court he was sorry.
