Man Sentenced In Shooting Of 4-Year-Old

Associated Press - September 10, 2013 6:42 am

The last of five defendants in the death of a Pittsburg State University student has been sentenced.

An Ottawa man has been sentenced to more than four years with the state corrections department for accidentally shooting a 4-year-old boy.

A judge will decide Sept. 30 whether 40-year-old Brian K. Bruno will serve the sentence in prison or on probation.

Bruno was sentenced Monday to four years and four months for aggravated battery and a concurrent one year sentence for child endangerment. Bruno pleaded no contest to the charges last month.

Authorities say the boy was shot in the leg with a handgun at his home. He survived and no one else was injured. Bruno lived with the boy but was not his father.

Bruno will be required to register as a violent offender.
