STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut man who was a teenager when he was arrested for shooting another teen in the chest has been sentenced to
seven-and-a-half years behind bars.
Twenty-year-old Darnell “Pookie” Brown, of Norwalk, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault earlier this year.
The Hour reports (http://bit.ly/2iN7jhm ) that he was given a 15-year sentence Thursday with half suspended and the other half to serve.
Police say Brown was 16 when he was arrested in 2013 after he got into a fight in Norwalk and shot a 19-year-old man in the chest.
The man survived the gunshot and is currently recovering.
Officials say the shooting was caught on surveillance video from two points of view.
