ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A man who shot at two county police officers — barely missing their heads — during a barricade last spring was found not criminally responsible and freed from jail yesterday, just hours after he pleaded guilty to the crime.
Michael Puckett, 25, of Oak Springs Drive in Glen Burnie, pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted second-degree murder in Circuit Court in Annapolis before Judge Paul A. Hackner.
