COLUMBIA, Mo. (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.

The Columbia Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1DvrrW1 ) 26-year-old Lawrence Lawhorn was sentenced on 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.
