IUKA, Miss. (WTVA) - A judge sentenced a Tishomingo man to serve 60 years in prison for a May 2018 shooting.

Brian Turner appeared in court on Monday after a Tishomingo County jury found him guilty on Thursday.

The jury convicted the 46-year-old of shooting at law enforcement officers in May 2018.

Turner is not eligible for early release or parole due to his habitual offender status, said District Attorney John Weddle.
