PHOENIX (AP) - A man has been sentenced to seven years in prison in the 2013 armed robbery and shootings of a Phoenix police officer and Maricopa County Sheriff’s posse member.

David Lee Murray also was sentenced Wednesday to five years of supervised probation.

Last month, the shooter in the case was sentenced to 66 ½ years in prison.

The shooter and Murray led police on a chase after two Phoenix strip club employees were robbed at gunpoint in a restaurant parking lot on Dec. 31, 2013.

The suspects’ getaway vehicle eventually collided with a truck driven by the posse member, who had gotten out of his vehicle to help the police officer subdue the suspects.

During the struggle, the shooter took the officer’s gun and shot the policeman and the posse member.
