A Baltimore teenager who was due to be jailed last year at the time he came across a police officer in a stolen Jeep was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison.
17-year-old Daunta Harris was tried as an adult and convicted earlier this year in the May 2018 murder of a Baltimore County police officer Amy Caprio. On Wednesday, a judge sentenced the teenager to life in prison in addition to 20 years of burglary.
"Amy was unnecessarily and selflessly killed," said the victim's husband, Tim Caprio.

Caprio succeeded in firing one round, which crashed on the windshield of the jeep. Residents of the Baltimore suburb are reported to have found the officer bloodied and with traces of tires on his feet. She received broken ribs and injuries to her internal organs.
Police allege that Harris pulled the jeep several blocks away.

A week later, Caprio is dead.
