The 34-year-old was arrested and charged in Concord after Franklin police launched a manhunt for him after they say he fired at police officers during a standoff. No one was injured during the standoff.

Franklin Police Chief David Goldstein says he’s pleased with the sentence, saying it sends a message that police officers and the public need to be protected.
