Headland teen gets 891 years in police shooting

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A Headland teen-ager accused of shooting and wounding two Dothan police officers has been sentenced to what likely will be a life term after a jury found him guilty of attempted murder, kidnapping and robbery.

Houston County Circuit Judge Lawson Little sentenced 19-year-old Andrevis Davis on Tuesday to 891 years in prison, or 99 years for each of nine counts.

The judge ruled that the sentences must be served one after the other, not concurrently.

Davis was accused of opening fire on the two officers when they walked into the Hobo Pantry convenience store during a robbery.

Officer Arthur Schaefer III testified that a bullet wound to the head left his face partially paralyzed.

Officer Walter Ray Handley also suffered gunshot wounds to his side and arm.
