Albert Smith, who was convicted of 25 charges including 10 counts of attempted murder after a 2011 chase and shootout on I-5 near Castella, has been sentenced to 350 years to life in prison, without the possibility of parole.

Investigators said Smith took officers on a high-speed chase on Oct. 27, 2011. They said Smith eventually stopped near Castella, only to open fire on law enforcement.

A K-9 was grazed by a bullet on his paw, but no other officers were hurt.

Smith was shot and suffered injuries in his shoulder area.
