FALLON (AP) - A 19-year-old Fallon man has been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison in connection with a shooting in Fallon in June.

Ebelio Tapia Jr. had pleaded guilty to one count of battery with a deadly weapon causing substantial bodily harm and two counts of conspiracy to commit a crime. He'll have to serve a minimum of two years.

Tapia shot Patrick Black in the arm as two other men were about to engage in a pre-arranged fight. Police say he was there to serve as an armed backup with a stolen gun.
