A Madison man was sentenced Friday for a shooting in May at a residence above a State Street bar.

Derrick D. Paige, 28, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and four years of extended supervision. He pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless injury in October, and a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm was dismissed, according to court records.

Officials responded to a report of shots fired in an apartment building located above Whiskey Jack’s bar at 556 State St. around 8 p.m. on May 23.

The shooter left the building on foot. The shooting is not considered random, as the two men knew each other.

When officers arrived, the 36-year-old victim had two gunshot wounds; one on his head, one on his arm. The man was taken to a hospital for emergency medical treatment, but was expected to survive.
