A man who fired shots at two police officers in Queens was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison on Tuesday.
Antonio Olmeda, 53, of Manhattan, pleaded guilty earlier this month to charges of first-degree attempted murder for trying to kill NYPD Officers Stephen Denisi and Matthew Ferrara as they patrolled Jackson Heights in 2011.
When the cops approached Olmeda — who was clad in a fake beard, fedora, trench coat and glasses — he refused to take his hands out of his pockets, and then swiftly pulled out a gun and fired three shots.
While neither Denisi nor Ferrara was hit, one of the rounds flew through the window of a nearby dentist’s office, whose waiting room was packed with children.
Olmeda, 58, was caught after police matched his DNA to the faux facial hair, which fell off as he fled the scene.
