Crossgates Mall shooter Tasheem Maeweather has been handed down a sentence of three and a half to seven years in prison.

He'll start this sentence after serving a nine year sentence for a parole violation. 

On November 12, 2016, multiple accounts of shots fired near a crowded area of the mall near the Apple Store were reported to law enforcement. At the time of the incident there were thousands of people and employees present at the mall. The incident happened just yards away from “Santa Land,” where multiple families were lined up to take holiday photos. 

In May, a jury found him guilty of reckless endangerment, but he was acquitted of more serious charges.
