PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to 12 to 30 years in a shooting outside a Pittsburgh high school 2½ years ago.

Nineteen-year-old Anjohnito Willet was sentenced Wednesday in Allegheny County on attempted homicide and aggravated assault convictions in the November 2013 shooting outside Brashear High School.

Authorities said Willet shot three students, firing from a wooded area as they left school. Police said Willet had been attacked in the school in October but refused to press charges, saying “I’ll handle this myself.”

Prosecutors sought a term of 34 to 69 years, but Willet’s attorney asked for less, saying his client has no prior record and can be rehabilitated. Willett, who was 17 at the time, said he wanted to “make the best of it” and complete his education.
