EVANSVILLE — A 30-year prison sentence has been handed to an Indiana man who shot inside a crowded Veterans of Foreign Wars post after he was barred from entering.
John Burghardt on Jan. 13 shot 48-year-old Paul Glover in the abdomen after Glover barred him from entering through a back door. Police say the gunman then entered the post and fired a shot at a woman who pushed him back with a grill scraper before others in the post tackled and disarmed him and held him down until officers arrived.
Glover survived the shooting.
The 71-year-old Burghardt was found guilty in August of attempted murder, aggravated battery, attempted aggravated battery, battery with a deadly weapon and attempted battery with a deadly weapon.
Burghardt was sentenced Wednesday by Circuit Court Magistrate Michael Cox.
