South St. Paul, MN (AP) - A South St. Paul man has been sentenced to 20 years in custody in connection with the 2018 shooting of two police officers.

Thirty-four-year-old Dustin Bilderback pleaded guilty in October to two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Prosecutors say that in July 2018, South St. Paul officers were called to a group home to conduct a welfare check on Bilderback when he pulled a shotgun from his car. He shot one officer in the back, neck and arm, and shot a second officer in the leg.

He dropped his weapon and surrendered after running out of ammunition.
