HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A man who shot at two Huntsville Police officers will spend the rest of his life in prison.

A judge sentenced Samuel Ward to life plus 20 years, on top of a 20-year sentence he was already serving for a different assault against Huntsville Police.

Two years ago, Ward fired at officers after they asked him to get out of his car. Officers fired back, hitting Ward five times.
