FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A Fort Bragg panel is recommending an honorable Army discharge for a soldier sentenced to a lengthy prison term for shooting at firefighters and police.

The Fayetteville Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1ZoB5F8 ) Staff Sgt. Joshua Eisenhauer had been diagnosed as suffering from severe post-traumatic stress disorder before he shot at police and firefighters in 2012.

A three-member Army board decided Friday that Eisenhauer was guilty of misconduct but recommended a discharge keeping him eligible to receive health care through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The 34-year-old Afghanistan war veteran was sentenced in August to between 10 years and 18 years in prison for shooting at police and firefighters. Prosecutors say he fired 24 rounds during a four-hour standoff. Eisenhauer was shot several times. Two officers suffered minor injuries.
