ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) - A man who pointed a gun at officers during a burglary and assault in 2015 has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2lCB6Fz ) reports that 36-year-old Samir Aaron Alan pleaded guilty to assault on a law enforcement officer and armed criminal action.

Authorities say Alan pointed a handgun at a detective with the St. Charles County Police Department who had entered a house as Alan and his brother were assaulting a man who lived there. The detective had been outside the house with agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Alan’s brother, 35-year-old Eric Scott Alan, faces charges of assault, burglary and armed criminal action. He’s scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
