A man who wounded two police officers in a shootout at his Winnipeg home has been sentenced to 14 years in jail.

WINNIPEG — A man who wounded two police officers in a shootout at his Winnipeg home has been sentenced to 14 years in jail.

The Crown had asked for 20 years in prison for Daniell Anderson with no chance of parole for 10 years.

But his defence lawyers said seven years was enough for someone who didn’t realize he was shooting at police.

Officers were executing a drug search warrant in December 2006 when Anderson shot at them through a bathroom door.

He told his trial he never heard police identify themselves because he was watching a loud movie and he thought the officers were thieves.
