FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for shooting and wounding a police officer.

A St. Lucie County judge sentenced 57-year-old Robert Frey II on Tuesday. He was convicted last month of attempted second-degree murder and discharging a firearm causing injury to a police officer.

Authorities say Port St. Lucie Police Lt. Ron Caudell was responding to a domestic incident at Frey’s home in February 2013 when Frey shot him in the lower left leg with a shotgun.

Treasure Coast Newspapers (https://goo.gl/rS5owJ ) reports that Frey surrendered following a several-hour standoff.
