A Cottonwood man was sentenced to over 145 years for shooting at federal officers in Tucson during a standoff that happened in 2016 Tuesday.

Jack Voris, 47, was found guilty on six counts of assault on a federal officer and weapons offenses by a federal jury in Tucson earlier this year.

On Oct. 28, 2016, task force members were serving an arrest warrant for Voris who was at the Quality Inn at I-10 and Palo Verde.

Voris shot at the officers but missed. After a five-hour standoff with the Pima County Sheriff's Department, Voris surrendered.
