GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 23-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing Eddie Briggs in Gulfport in 2015.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2eRgVls) Judge Chris Schmidt sentenced 23-year-old Henry Harvey Tuesday on a murder charge in Harrison County Circuit Court.

Briggs was 29 when he was fatally shot on Jan. 27, 2015, in a courtyard between two buildings at the Emerald Pines apartment complex after an argument in an apartment. He was shot in the face and shoulder and was on a sidewalk when Gulfport police reached the complex.

A jury convicted Harvey last week. The jury was given an option to consider manslaughter. Jurors deliberated about 3 1/2 hours before finding Harvey guilty.
