SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Springfield man was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison without parole for shooting at a federal probation officer.

Thirty-year-old Enrique Castaneda was sentenced Tuesday for assaulting a federal employee with a firearm.

When he pleaded guilty in May, Castaneda admitted that he shot at a federal probation officer who was driving to her office at a federal courthouse in Springfield on March 13, 2018.

Castaneda shot as the officer drove by. He hit the officer’s vehicle but she was not injured.
