WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) -

A man accused of gunning down a store clerk in Waterbury two years ago will be sentenced on Monday.

Tony Dupre, 21, shot David Shand at the Bucks Hill Market on Boyden Street in 2014.

He faces 45 years in prison.

Shand was hit in the neck during what police described as an armed robbery.

He spent 10 days fighting for his life in a hospital.

Police said the case then shifted to a homicide.

Dupre, who was 19 at the time, was charged with murder, first-degree robbery, carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal use of a weapon, sixth-degree larceny and interfering with an officer.

He'll be sentenced in Waterbury Superior Court.
