By Adam Carros

DUBUQUE, Iowa -- A man who shot at Dubuque police officers in June now faces up to 10 years in federal prison.

Daniel Campbell, 30, of Dubuque was convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon in federal court in Cedar Rapids on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Dubuque officers confronted Campbell on June 10, 2013, in response to a report of a man carrying a gun. Campbell then pulled two guns from his pants as he ran away. He threw one to the side and fired a shot over his shoulder with the other. The gunshot did not hit anyone. Police found Campbell hiding in a trash pile a few blocks away a short time later.

Campbell faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. His sentencing date has not been set.
