JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man who was 16 years old when he gunned down a man has been sentenced to a decade in prison.

The Jersey Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1MLFZ71 ) Superior Court Judge John Young handed down the sentence against the now 19-year-old man on Thursday. The man pleaded guilty in May to aggravated manslaughter in the 2012 killing of 21-year-old Jalauni Harrigan in Jersey City.

Young says the teen “gunned down a man for no reason whatsoever.”

Defense attorney Christopher Orriss read a statement from his client in which he apologized to Harrigan’s family and says he’s ready to repay his “debt to society.”

The man must serve 8 ½ years behind bars before he’s eligible for parole.
