HARRISBURG, AR  (KAIT) – A man arrested for pointing a gun at officers during his arrest was sentenced to 6 years in prison Monday in Poinsett County Circuit Court, according to 2nd Judicial Prosecutor's Office.

According to Zach Morrison, Executive Assistant for Scott Ellington, Brown plead guilty to possession of a defaced firearm and possession of a firearm by certain persons. Brown was also given eight years suspended sentence.

Brown, who was wanted out of Poinsett County for failing to register as a sex offender, was arrested on November 22, 2013. According to Arkansas State Police, Brown ran from Trumann police officers during a search. Once Brown was found, he pointed a gun at officers.

Trumann Police Lt. Gary Henry then shot Brown after demanding him to drop the weapon several times. Ellington said the shooting was justified.
