The man implicated in a double shooting at a Newfield trailer park last year has been sentenced to 16 years in state prison.

In April of last year, 36-year-old Donnell Harrison confronted two men at their home in Newfield, shooting one in the leg and the other in the face.

Harrison got away, and it took two months for U.S. Marshals to track him down in New York City.

He was found guilty of first degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Prosecutors say he had a previous conviction for a violent felony offense.

Harrison could have faced up to 25 years in prison under the maximum sentence.
