INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A man convicted of firing dozens of bullets at two Indianapolis police district offices has been sentenced to 37 years in prison.

A Marion County judge sentenced 22-year-old Damoine A. Wilcoxson on Friday. He had been convicted of two counts of attempted murder and criminal recklessness.

Prosecutors say Wilcoxson fired more than 30 rounds into the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department’s Northwest District office on Oct. 4, 2016, and then fired 16 shots into the North District office nine days later. A bullet missed one officer by only inches.

The Indianapolis Star reports Wilcoxson is also accused of murder in the slaying of a man in adjacent Boone County. He’s scheduled to be tried there in May for murder in the shooting death of 82-year-old John Clements of Zionsville.
