30-year sentence for Fulton, Missouri man who shot at deputies

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A central Missouri man who admitted shooting at officers and tractor-trailers during an Interstate 70 police chase has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Russell Deane Moore Jr. of Fulton was sentenced Tuesday. He pleaded guilty in December to two counts of destruction of a motor vehicle, one count of unlawful transport of firearms and one count of receiving stolen firearms.

The April 2016 chase started when a stolen Jeep was spotted at a Columbia truck stop. Moore shot at Boone County deputies and tractor-trailers in an effort to cause a serious accident that would stop the pursuit. The chase ended when the Jeep ran out of gas.

No deputies or truck drivers were injured.
