LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A 22-year-old man, already convicted of a felony, is facing prison time for a shooting incident last year in the city.
Last month, Tyair A. Burnside, of Lancaster, was found guilty for illegal possession of a firearm.
Police say they witnessed Burnside fire a .25-caliber semi-automatic pistol from a moving car back in June of 2014.
Officers recovered the weapon when Burnside reportedly threw the gun outside the car.
No one was injured in the incident.
In court, District Attorney Craig Stedman said, “Felons who choose to carry a gun need to face serious consequences.”
Burnside was ordered a mitigated sentence of three to ten years in prison by Judge James Cullen.
