EMPORIA, Va. (WTVR) – The man who shot a girl who was riding her scooter down an Emporia street was sentenced to 39 years in prison.  Evan Lee McNair, 23, pleaded guilty to malicious wounding and firearms charges in connection to the April 2012 shooting.

The shooting victim, now 12, is still recovering from injures she suffered in the shooting.

McNair shot the child when he opened fire on his ex-girlfriend’s mini-van. The shooting came just hours after McNair was released from jail and served with a protective order to stay away from the woman.
