SEARCY, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas man has been sentenced to 32 years in prison for the shooting death of a 38-year-old Searcy man earlier this year.

Shelby Glenn Taylor of Pangburn pleaded guilty Wednesday to first-degree murder for the death of Brian Michael Poole. Prosecutors say that Taylor struck Poole in the face with a shotgun, and the firearm discharged.

Poole died from the gunshot wound.

The Daily Citizen reports that Taylor also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault because the shooting happened in a room full of people who could have been struck by gunfire. He also pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
