MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon high school student who fired shotgun blasts into a home with seven people inside has been sentenced to six years in prison.
The Mail Tribune reports (https://is.gd/Ve9PCo ) Felipe Villalba pleaded guilty Monday to attempted first-degree assault. He was 18 at the time of the December 2016 shooting.
According to an affidavit, the Phoenix High student said he grew paranoid about a Facebook post made by someone who lived in the house. Villalba, who was taking an anti-anxiety drug, then went to Talent and shot through a window into the house.
Authorities say Villalba bragged about the shooting at school and posted a photo of himself with the shotgun on Snapchat.
Villalba declined to make a statement in court. Defense lawyer Larry Roloff said Villalba essentially had a breakdown.
