Teen Sentenced To Probation After Firing At Deputies

A teenager who shot at Douglas County deputies, injuring one of them, has been sentenced to serve probation.

Eighteen year old Tyler Pitzl could have received serious prison time. He was originally charged with attempted murder but his lawyer, James Martin Davis, was able to keep the case in juvenile court.

Pitzl will be on juvenile probation until February, after that, he will serve an additional year of adult probation. The teen underwent psychological and chemical dependency evaluations before being sentenced.

Davis had argued that Pitzl had a brain disorder as a result of injuries he sustained the night before the shooting. Pitzl will also serve 200 hours of community service.
