July 8, 2018

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A man accused of shooting at a Spokane sheriff’s deputy has pleaded guilty to multiple charges.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Officer says Mark Perry pleaded guilty to drive-by shooting, attempting to elude a police vehicle and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Officials say Perry was trying to flee a sheriff’s deputy on September 20, 2017. During the pursuit, he slammed on his brakes to lure Deputy Stan Kravtsov closer.

When the deputy was close, Perry shot at him through the back window.

He missed the deputy and later crashed and fled on foot.

He was captured later that night and arrested.

He pleaded guilty on July 2 and was sentenced to 32 years in prison.
