LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - A man convicted of second-degree attempted murder for shooting at a Fort Collins police officer has been sentenced to 24 years in prison.
Jose Ornelas-Licano was found guilty after he shot at the officer, crashed a truck and set off a manhunt. No one was hit.
Police tried to arrest Ornelas-Licano in 2014 on outstanding warrants for failing to appear on separate drug and fraud cases. He then sped off and shot through his own windshield at a marked patrol vehicle.
According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan (https://tinyurl.com/j9j9lox ), about a dozen Fort Collins Police Services employees were in the courtroom for the sentencing.
