Man gets 27-year sentence

WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for shooting at police officers in 2016 as they responded to a domestic disturbance call in a north Chicago suburb.

A Lake County jury had convicted Olvan Quezada of Zion in October of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer in addition to three other charges, court records show.

The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office said the judge who sentenced Quezanda, 22, on Monday also ordered him to serve three years of mandatory supervised release after completing his prison sentence.

Authorities said Quezanda shot at Waukegan officers on June 17, 2016, after they arrived at the scene of a domestic disturbance and arrested two people after hearing multiple gunshots.

Police said Quezanda fired four or five shots in the direction of the officers after they heard a voice yell an obscenity in their direction.

Lake County prosecutors said no one was hurt and officers did not return fire.

State’s Attorney Mike Nerheim said in a news release that “we are extremely fortunate this event did not end in a more tragic way.“
