A Baton Rouge man has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to shooting two detectives when they tried to execute a search warrant at his home in 2008.

Ellis Henry Jr. pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on a police officer with a firearm.

Authorities say Henry allegedly fired nine shots hitting one deputy in the knee, and another was shot in the calf.

The affidavit of probable cause says detectives obtained a no-knock search warrant after a confidential informant bought suspected crack cocaine from Henry.
