An Oklahoma man convicted of injuring several law officers in a September 2017 shooting has received 10 life sentences.

Last year, Grady County jurors convicted 62-year-old Alex Klingler of six counts of shooting with intent to kill, three counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon and one count of maiming.

The jury recommended that Klingler be sentenced to life in prison on each count and a judge formally sentenced Klingler on Tuesday.

The shooting occurred while officers tried to serve a search warrant following a kidnapping attempt in Chickasha , Oklahoma. Authorities say several officers were injured after Klingler opened fire from a residence.

Klingler indicated during his sentencing hearing that he will appeal the sentences.
