NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man who pleaded guilty to shooting a man four times during an apparent dispute over a parking spot has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1DNHjlp ) that Marcus Martin, of Irvington, pleaded guilty to attempted murder on Dec. 15. He was sentenced on Friday.

The 33-year-old told Judge Martin Cronin that he wants to “make amends for the things I’ve done wrong.”

Martin confessed to shooting a man four times in the torso as he tried to walk away after an argument on Labor Day 2013.

The victim spent nearly a month in the hospital and was in a coma for most of that time.
