Nevada man sentenced in reality TV-show shooting

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 43-year-old former schoolteacher was sentenced to 90 days in jail and five years of probation for an April 2011 shooting involving a crew of the reality TV show "Repo Games" in his North Las Vegas neighborhood. 

Carlos Enrique Barron asked Tuesday for mercy and leniency and said he didn't want to go to jail.

About a dozen of Barron's friends and family members stood in the courtroom to show their support.

But Clark County District Court Judge James Bixler said Barron had to be punished for his convictions on felony assault with a weapon, concealed weapon, burglary and misdemeanor discharging a firearm charges.

Barron testified at trial that it was self-defense when he confronted two men in a van blocking his driveway.

Three shots were fired. No one was wounded.
