N.H. man gets 60 years for shooting police officer

A Litchfield man convicted of attempted murder in the shooting of a Manchester police officer has been sentenced to 60 years to life in prison. Myles Webster, 23, was convicted in December of shooting Officer Daniel Doherty last March, shattering his leg and causing serious internal injuries. At Webster’s sentencing hearing Monday, Doherty said he is still living with the scars of seven bullet wounds, but is on a fast track for recovery. In urging the judge to impose a significant sentence, he echoed prosecutor Jeff Strelzin, who said nothing but locking Webster up would stop him from harming others.
