ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A 30-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for fatally shooting another man in central Minnesota two years ago.

A judge Friday found Marcus Barshaw guilty of first- and second-degree murder in the shooting death of 30-year-old Jeffrey Schutz of Rockville on Oct. 21, 2012.

The St. Cloud Times (https://on.sctimes.com/1z1NiCT ) reports Stearns County Judge Frederick Grunke then sentenced Barshaw to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Prosecutors alleged Barshaw shot and killed Schutz after the two argued at Schutz’s home. Police say Schutz was shot six times, and Barshaw fled to a nearby apartment building.

A sheriff’s deputy later shot Barshaw after Barshaw started to point a gun at him.

Barshaw also was found guilty of first-degree assault of a deputy.
