PROVIDENCE — An army of Boston police officers filed into a courtroom yesterday for the sentencing of a man who drove a car last year at two officers in Rhode Island and who killed a Boston officer in 1993.

Terrell Muhammad, 47, served 15 years of a 26- to 30-year sentence for shooting Sergeant Thomas F. Rose with his own gun while trying to escape from the Government Center police station. He was released in 2009.

Last July, Muhammad, who last lived in Pawtucket, R.I., ran a stop sign and then fled from the officer who pulled him over. During the high-speed chase, he twice swerved at cruisers in Cranston, R.I. Uninjured, the officers called off their pursuit.
