A man was sentenced to 30 years in prison Tuesday for a SWAT standoff that included gunfire.

Samuel Gonzalez fired at officers and deputies in October 2016 in McFarland.

The standoff was sparked by a domestic violence call.

Gonzalez pleaded no contest to one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm on a peace officer. A dozen other felonies and one misdemeanor were dismissed.
