DUBUQUE (AP) — A man has been given 30 months in prison for shooting into a Dubuque nightclub.
Prosecutors say 33-year-old Ricardo Sanchez, from Forest City, Illinois, was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids. He’d pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm by a drug user.
Police say Sanchez fired repeatedly into Club Rise in Dubuque at about 3:30 a.m. Nov. 27 last year. The club was closed, but four employees were inside. None were hit.
Sanchez is a music promoter who police say had a dispute with Club Rise over payments for a concert.
Iowa charges were dropped when the federal charge was filed.
