PHOENIX (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for his role in a shooting outside a northwest Phoenix nightclub that left another suspect dead.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 20-year-old Jose Luis Chacon was sentenced Wednesday for second-degree murder.
An off-duty Phoenix police officer working security at the club reported seeing several suspects trying to steal a small refrigerator from his pickup truck on March 30, 2013.
It led to a parking lot shootout involving the suspects, the officer and a nightclub employee.
Authorities say the suspects' getaway driver died at the scene.
They say Chacon admitted to shooting a rifle during the incident. The officer and the nightclub employee weren't injured.
Court records show Chacon originally faced a charge of first-degree murder during the commission of a crime.
