Man Sentenced in Shooting That Partially Paralyzed a Deputy


A Mississippi judge has sentenced a man to 210 years in prison for shooting at law enforcement officers in 2019 and leaving a sheriff’s deputy partially paralyzed. Edgar Egbert appeared Thursday in Madison County Circuit Court and pleaded guilty to six counts of attempted murder of law enforcement agents. Judge John Emfinger gave Egbert six consecutive 35-year sentences. Court testimony revealed Egbert shot at deputies in their vehicles. Deputy Brad Sullivan was in a coma almost a month after being shot. He uses a wheelchair and cannot see from one eye. Sullivan told Egbert in court: “You murdered me that day.” AP)
