CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A man who fatally shot another man following an argument at a southern New Jersey barbershop is now headed to state prison.

Camden County prosecutors say 43-year-old Jamal Herrin, of Sicklerville, received a 25-year sentence Monday. It will run consecutively to a 10-year federal prison sentence he’s now serving for a drug offense.

Herrin pleaded guilty last month to aggravated manslaughter in the death of Terrance Barnum, who was killed on New Year’s Eve 2011.

Witnesses said Herrin had a verbal dispute with several men who were in front of the business. He went to his car and returned with a handgun that he used to shoot the 40-year-old Barnum in the head.

No other injuries were reported in the shooting, but authorities say it was witnessed by some children.
