Norwalk man sent to prison for triple shooting


A state judge has sentenced a Norwalk man to two years in prison for gun crimes for shooting three people in what his lawyer called self-defense.

Twenty-three-year-old Christopher Entzminger-Joyner was sentenced Tuesday in Stamford Superior Court, after having pleaded guilty in November to unlawful discharge of a firearm and carrying a pistol without a permit.

Entzminger-Joyner's lawyer, Mark Sherman, says his client pulled out a gun and opened fire when he was attacked by a gang of youths in August 2011. Three men, including Entzminger-Joyner's cousin, were shot but survived.

Sherman says Entzminger-Joyner is looking forward to moving on with this life. He says there are no doubts the shooting was self-defense and the plea deal reflects that.
