SALINA, Kan. (AP) – A man in central Kansas who pleaded no contest to shooting at a police detective and assaulting two teenagers has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison.
Judge Rene Young sentenced 36-year-old Michael Ryan Monday in Saline County District Court.
Ryan pleaded no contest to felony charges of attempted manslaughter of Salina detective Crystal Hornseth; aggravated assaults of his daughter Destiny Hunt and her friend Tyler Wolf; and criminal discharge of a firearm into an occupied dwelling. He also pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.
According to a testimony, Ryan arrived at a house in June 2015 where Hunt was with her friends. He pointed an AR-15 rifle at Wolf, forced his daughter to come with him and later fired 10 shots as Salina police arrived.
