Man sentenced for 1400 Club shooting
HARRISBURG, Pa — A Harrisburg man will serve 10-20 years in prison after pleading guilty to a shooting outside a Harrisburg club in 2013. Charles West, 46, entered a guilty plea yesterday to the charges of Attempted Homicide; Aggravated Assault; Persons Not to Possess a Firearm; Carrying a Firearm Without a License; and Recklessly Endangering Another Person.
The shooting took place on June 11, 2013, outside the 1400 Club at Third and Calder Streets in Harrisburg. The victim sustained a gunshot wound to the back and has since recovered from his injuries. The incident was captured on a surveillance video outside the bar. West claimed that he was acting in self-defense but the video and witnesses to the incident clearly indicated it was an unprovoked attack.
West was sentenced immediately by the Honorable Judge Scott Arthur Evans to a term of 10-20 years in a state penitentiary in accordance with a plea agreement with the Commonwealth.
