Man gets 14 to 31 years for police station attack

In Court

EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) – A man will spend 14 to 31 years in prison for shooting up a cruiser during an attack on a western Pennsylvania police station nearly two years ago.

Cambria County prosecutors asked for the stiff sentence, saying 46-year-old Kevin McGee is dangerous, craved attention and recorded the incident in Richland Township on a portable camera he wore.

Police shot McGee after he allegedly raised his gun toward an officer and refused to drop the weapon on Sept. 12, 2012 at the station in suburban Johnstown. Police say McGee later made statements including “I own the world” and that he was “in charge of the planet and he needed respect.”

McGee was sentenced Tuesday by a Cambria County judge. He was convicted of attempted homicide and several other charges in April.
