    A man could spend almost eight years behind bars, for shooting a Hamilton police officer five months ago

    A man could spend almost eight years behind bars, for shooting a Hamilton police officer five months ago


    Shannon Henry has been sentenced to seven years and eight months in prison, for wounding with intent, and illegal use of firearms and a vehicle.

    The 23-year-old was sentenced in the Hamilton District Court this morning.

    The officer was seriously injured during the late night traffic stop in Chartwell - and still receiving treatment.

    Police say the sentencing sends a clear message offenders will be held to account.
