Sharon man gets 10 years in prison for shooting at police
Eugene J. Lehman, 46, pleaded guilty in October to charges of endangering safety by reckless use of a weapon, failing to comply with police, endangering safety and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Police from three counties in Wisconsin and one in Illinois responded to the standoff that ended with volleys of teargas and Lehman shooting himself in the stomach.
According to a criminal complaint, Lehman burned his wife's clothes and shot several rounds over the heads of police after a domestic dispute at the couple's home.
The couple is now getting a divorce, according to court records.
Nearby homes were evacuated, and no one else was injured.
Lehman will serve 13 1/2 years of extended supervision after he leaves prison.
