CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A Harpers Ferry, W.Va., man has been sentenced to six years in prison following an incident last summer in which police were fired at up to 14 times with an AK-47 and one of their cruisers was rammed, according to prosecutors.
Bobby Davis, 24, of Route 2, Harpers Ferry, was sentenced last Wednesday by Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Thomas W. Steptoe Jr., according to Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Michael D. Thompson.
Davis received the sentencing following a plea agreement in which he pleaded guilty to three counts of wanton endangerment with a firearm, according to Jefferson County Circuit Court records.
Under the agreement, other charges were dropped, Thompson said.
Davis was initially indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury on three counts of first-degree attempted murder, three counts of wanton endangerment involving a firearm, three counts of shooting at another person in a place of public resort and three counts of assault on a police officer, according to Jefferson County Circuit Court records.
