Man gets 2 years in brother's shooting
COLUMBIA (AP) - A man who police say shot his half brother has been sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty to a reduced charge.
26-year-old Lawrence Lawhorn was sentenced Monday. He pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm. He pleaded not guilty in July to charges of first-degree domestic assault and armed criminal action in the Oct. 17 shooting.
The half brother suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say a surveillance video captured the shooting and a witness picked Lawhorn out of a photo lineup. He was on parole when he was arrested.
