MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Martinsburg man has been sentenced to up to 60 years in prison for shooting a child and another man during a Fourth of July celebration.
 
The Journal reports 29-year-old Daniel L. Herbert was sentenced Thursday in Berkeley County Circuit Court.
 
A jury found Herbert guilty last month on charges of attempted murder, malicious assault, wanton endangerment and fleeing from police.
 
Judge John Yoder noted that Herbert was a convicted felon who possessed a gun illegally.
 
Prosecutors say Herbert shot 26-year-old Gabriel McGuire of Martinsburg and an 8-year-old girl during the holiday event at War Memorial Park in Martinsburg on July 4, 2012. Both victims recovered.
 
Herbert testified he shot McGuire in self-defense.
