BRECKENRIDGE — A judge has sentenced a man convicted in a shooting in Breckenridge to seven years in prison.

Matthew Allard was convicted of assault, making threats and firing a gun, but acquitted of attempted murder. Allard was arrested at a mobile home in Wahpeton, North Dakota, after an extensive search by police following the shooting in December.

Court documents say Allard argued with Isaac Herrera at a Breckenridge home and fired two shots from a pistol, striking Herrera in the stomach.
