FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A man who was shot and wounded by Fort Collins police after allegedly lunging at an officer with a knife has been sentenced to three years in prison.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports (https://tinyurl.com/lov34ob ) 54-year-old Richard Ivey was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty in January to a charge of felony menacing.

Ivey was accused of charging an officer in a hospital parking lot in June. He was shot and critically wounded.

Investigators have said Ivey later apologized and said he provoked the officer because he wanted to die. Ivey said he was disabled, homeless and living on the streets at the time.

The officer was cleared of wrongdoing.
