A Harrisburg man convicted for a shooting incident in the city last year has been given the maximum sentence allowed by law.

Cordero Urrutia, 24, was sentenced Thursday to 18-and-a-half to 37 years in state prison.

Urrutia was found guilty in October of aggravated assault, discharging a firearm into an occupied structure, and illegal firearm possession for the incident on Logan Street in July 2012.

Prosecutors said he fired multiple shots at a man during a dispute the two had over a woman.

The victim was not injured by the gunfire, but several bullets struck his home while it was occupied by several people, including several young children.

Uruttia, who was convicted of robbery in 2007, was sentenced as a “second strike” violent offender.
