WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for a fatal shooting that followed an earlier fight.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Garry Pierre was sentenced Wednesday after a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder.

Authorities say Pierre shot Christo Maccius outside O’Connor’s Pub in Boca Raton in July 2016.

Prosecutors say Maccius had beat Pierre in a fight several months earlier, and that was the motive for the shooting.
