FOREST GROVE, Ore. (AP) — An off-duty Hillsboro police officer who exchange gunfire with officers during a domestic dispute in Forest Grove has pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated attempted murder.

KGW reports a plea deal will send Timothy Cannon to prison for 10 years.

The 46-year-old resigned after the shooting in January in which dozens of shots were fired as officers responded to a 911 call from his wife who said she had been threatened.

Cannon surrendered, and his wife and 6-year-old daughter were unharmed. Cannon and another officer had minor injuries.
