Teen who fired at trooper, fled in stolen car sentenced

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ A teen accused of firing a gun at a Nebraska trooper and fleeing in a stolen car has been sentenced to 6-to-8 years in prison. According to reports, 18-year-old Shane Kildow was sentenced Wednesday in Douglas County District Court. Kildow had earlier pleaded no contest to attempted assault of an officer, car theft and a weapons count. Prosecutors say Kildow was 17 when he fired a handgun at least four times at the trooper who tried to pull him over northwest of Omaha in February 2017. Kildow led police on a high-speed chase before crashing the stolen car he was driving in Valley. He fled on foot before being caught with the help of a police dog. The trooper was not injured.
