WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - A man convicted of shooting four people in an alley outside Pennsylvania nightclub last year has been sentenced to 27½ to 55 years behind bars.

PennLive.com reports (https://bit.ly/2dZmKiR ) 34-year-old Michael Spencer was sentenced on Wednesday after a jury convicted him in July of 12 counts, including attempted homicide and aggravated assault.

The judge also found him guilty in a non-jury trial of unlawful possession of a firearm and carrying a firearm without a license.

The judge says there’s overwhelming evidence that Spencer got a pistol following an April 2015 dispute inside a Williamsport nightclub and shot toward a man, hitting four others.

Prosecutors asked for a sentence of 40 to 80 years. The defense asked for a sentence with a minimum of no more than 20 years.

Spencer has apologized.
