CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A Goose Creek man who seriously injured an officer and wounded two others during a shooting spree in 2010 has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Codrick Bass, 36, of Goose Creek pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and kidnapping, according to the Post and Courier. He submitted Alford pleas for three counts of attempted murder.
Investigators say then-Goose Creek police officer Robert Edwards Jr. was responding to a domestic violence call on July 19, 2010. Bass shot Edwards with a 12-guage shotgun from his porch, hitting him in nine places, including his face. One bullet punctured his lung. Doctors had to reconstruct his jaw.
Two other men attempting to help the mother and three children inside were grazed by buckshot.
Bass' attorney says he never intended to hurt anyone.
