LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Little Rock man has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for the shooting his ex-girlfriend after rehearsal for her 2013 high school graduation.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1K6AosM ) reports 22-year-old Christian Jackson was sentenced Monday for attempted capital murder.

Jasmine Denise Fisher said that Jackson had threatened to shoot her while she was on stage getting her diploma because she ended their relationship.

Prosecutors say Jackson wounded Fisher, then a Parkview High School senior, three times in the stomach after ambushing her from inside her car in the Verizon Arena parking lot. He then shot himself in the head.

Jackson survived and pleaded guilty in April. He will have to serve nearly 14 years in prison before he is eligible for parole.
