LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A man charged in a shooting that injured a Lincoln man has been sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison.

The Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1KH8YfV ) reports that 22-year-old Jeffery R. Wyatt Jr. was sentenced Wednesday. He had pleaded no contest to first-degree assault.

Authorities said that Wyatt shot Timothy Kuker twice in the abdomen last October on the porch of an apartment building in Lincoln. Wyatt was arrested a day later in Shelby, just south of Columbus.

Kuker remained in the hospital until he was released Jan. 4.
