Monday, November 01, 2010 – Scott Wykoff and Associated Press

A Baltimore man who shot a city police officer in February has pleaded guilty in federal court and agreed to a 19-year sentence.

Federal prosecutors say 42-year-old Glenn Brooks pleaded guilty Monday to being a felon in possession of a gun.

According to his plea agreement, police were tipped off that Brooks was on his porch and had a gun. When they found Brooks, he fired at them, striking Detective Christopher Funk in the right arm.

Funk and another detective returned fire, and Brooks was wounded in the shoulder. Police found a .38-caliber revolver and ammunition inside Brooks’ home. State court records show he had previously been convicted of armed robbery and a drug-dealing charge.

Brooks will be sentenced on Feb. 19.
