Jacksonville Jaguar shooter sentenced

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The man convicted of attempted
first-degree murder in the shooting of former Jacksonville Jaguars
offensive lineman Richard Collier has been given a life sentence.

According to the state attorney's office, Judge Mallory Cooper
sentenced Tyrone Hartsfield on Thursday afternoon. The 33-year-old
Hartsfield was convicted last month of the 2008 shooting.

Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda called the decision
"the appropriate sentence."

A message and an e-mail sent to Hartsfield's attorney were not
immediately returned.

Collier was shot six times as he waited in his car outside a
Jacksonville apartment building. He was paralyzed from the waist
down and his left leg was amputated.
