      Man gets 27 years for shoot-out with police

      Richard Radcliffe was sentenced to 27 years for his charges stemming from the shoot-out with police in April.

      The man who was found guilty of charges stemming from a shoot-out with police in April will spend 27 years behind bars.

      Richard Radcliffe, 50, was found guilty of 7 of 9 charges in late October.

      Radcliffe's lawyer says that an appeal is planned.

      He was found guilty of two counts of assault with intent to murder, three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, one count of discharge firearm in a building, and one count of felony firearm.

      The incident happened in early April outside of a home in the 1600 block of Sunhurst Street in Grawn.

      According to State Police Officers, a father and step-son were inside the house when authorities arrived on the scene to investigate reports of gun shots.

      One of the suspects was in the process of being secured by authorities when Radcliffe came out and opened fire on several officers with a high-powered rifle.

      One deputy was able to fire back.
