NORWALK (AP) — A man once listed among the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted fugitives has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for shooting and injuring a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy.

Emigdio Preciado on Tuesday pleaded guilty to assault on a peace officer. The 41-year-old gang member had fled after the shooting in September 2000.

He was extradited last year from Mexico, where he had lived in a small town under an assumed name.

Preciado and two other men were charged in the shooting of Deputy Michael Schapp in Whittier during a traffic stop. The two others charged in the case were convicted and sentenced to prison.

Schapp was shot in the face, but his partner was not wounded.
