FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Howard County man has been sentenced in Frederick to 40 years in prison for wounding a man and shooting at a police officer in 2005.

The Frederick News-Post reports Charles Moore Jr., 28, was sentenced Thursday. A Frederick County jury convicted him in September of attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and use of a handgun in a violent crime.

It was Moore’s third trial for the wounding of Romell Allen and an ensuing shootout with Frederick Police Sgt. Wayne Trapp in 2005.

Moore’s first conviction, in 2006, was overturned because of jury selection problems. His second trial last year ended in a mistrial when the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict.
