A word to the unwise: Don’t shoot at FBI agents.

Nicholas Henry, 28, Kansas City, Kan., was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison for attempting to kill an FBI agent and discharging a firearm during a crime of violence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

In his plea, Henry admitted that on Nov. 1, 2009, he fired at an FBI Task Force Officer in a parking lot at 151st and Ridgeview Road in Olathe, Kan. where he was in a stolen pickup truck, authorities said.

When the task force tried to arrest him, he produced a .40 caliber handgun and fired two shots at one of the agents who was about 10 feet away. He missed.

Other agents returned fire and hit Henry 14 times. He survived.
