CHICAGO — A Burr Ridge man who fired a volley of bullets at police officers trying to question him about a stolen bicycle pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated discharge of a firearm and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Jonathon Rossi, 31, was originally charged with attempted first-degree murder of the Burr Ridge officers outside his parents' garage in the 10S500 block of Glen Drive. But that charge was dropped Monday as part of a plea agreement. The incident took place Oct. 3, 2005.
