FOREST GROVE -- The former Hillsboro police officer who exchanged gunfire with 10 officers and threatened his wife in a Jan. 2013 domestic abuse case will spend the next 10 years in prison, after a plea deal.

Timothy Cannon pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated animal abuse and three counts of aggravated attempted murder in the settlement.

Background: Hillsboro cop pinned wife to floor

The probable cause statement said Cannon's wife Lisa called 9-1-1 and said she had barricaded herself in an upstairs bathroom after her husband had threatened to harm her.

The search warrant said Timothy at one point followed Lisa upstairs, pulled her out of their daughter's bedroom and pinned her to the floor, face down. Then, the two got up and went into the master bedroom where Timothy pinned her to the bed, according to the warrant.

Lisa was able at some point to get up and away, where she locked herself inside the master bathroom, armed with a handgun.

Officers arrived and eventually entered the home, where they tried to get Timothy to surrender. But he threatened to kill them, the court documents stated.

Timothy fired shots through sheetrock, through a door and into the floor about a yard in front of officers.

Lisa said she heard three volleys of several rounds before Timothy came into the bathroom where she was barricaded.

He said "No harm to you" and put down an AR-15 rifle he had been holding, muzzle down, the documents showed.

The incident ended when Lisa, who also worked in law enforcement, patted her husband down to find no weapons and walked out of the home with him and their 6-year-old daughter.
