BROOKLYN - The man convicted of shooting a police officer in Brooklyn last year has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Luis Ortiz shot Detective Sgt. Kevin Brennan in the head while Brennan was responding to a call at the Bushwick Houses back in January 2012.
He was charged with the attempted murder of Brennan and first-degree murder of another man.

Brennan remarkably made a full recovery, returned to the job and has since been promoted to detective sergeant. Today, he urged the judge to exercise zero leniency when issuing the sentence.
