Man gets 25 years in Stamford police officer shooting

The man who shot a Stamford police officer in the face back in 2010 over a search warrant was sentenced today to 25 years in prison.

Ephraim Goitom was sentenced in a plea agreement covering the shooting as well as state and federal drug charges.

Numerous officers were in court to show their support for Sgt. Richard Gasparino, who was shot.
