The man convicted of shooting an officer with the Tulsa (OK) Police Department during a July 2018 incident in the parking lot of a convenience store has been sentenced to 105 years behind bars.

According to the Tulsa World, the man—36-year-old John Terry Chatman—shot Lieutenant Mike Parsons in the leg, and directed gunfire toward Officers Danny Bean and Michael Cawiezell as they attempted to get him out of a parked vehicle.

Parsons fired a pepper ball into the parked vehicle and Chatman immediately opened fire on the officers on the scene. Officers returned fire, striking Chatman four times.

Last year, jurors found Chatman guilty of obstruction of justice, use of a firearm during a violent crime, and possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony.
