(WXYZ) — A man accused of shooting and killing a Detroit police officer was sentenced to a maximum of 60 years in prison.

Decharlos Brooks pleaded guilty to charges in connection with the shooting of Officer Glenn Doss Jr. He was sentenced to 36-60 years in prison, along with a two-year consecutive sentence for a felony firearm charge.

On Jan. 24, 2018, officers were dispatched to a house in the 5500 block of McDougal responding to shots fired. Brooks reportedly shot Officer Doss in the head. After shooting the officer, Brooks stood pointing his handgun at other officers at the scene.

Shortly after, he barricaded himself inside his house until the DPD Special Response Team was able to remove him from his house and place him under arrest.
