Admitted Police Shooter Sentenced
A Houston man who shot a Shreveport police officer in January of this year has been sentenced to 30 years at hard labor for attempted first-degree murder of a police officer.
26-year-old Jasmond Osborne pleaded guilty to the charge back in October rather than face a jury trial. He admitted to firing a shot that struck officer Greg Walker, a member of the Shreveport Police Department's Special Response Team, during a drug raid on Osborne's Greenwood Road motel room.
Assistant District Attorney Dhu Thompson says the bullet almost hit Walker in the neck, but his bullet resistant vest stopped it.
