Spartanburg, SC -

A man who was involved in a sniper-style attack in Spartanburg County last July was sentenced Wednesday.

According to our news coverage partners at the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Tyler Schomer, 18, of Spartanburg, pled guilty in April to three counts of attempted murder and receiving stolen goods. On Wednesday, Schomer was sentenced to 10 years in prison on each count of attempted murder and five years for receiving stolen goods, but a Circuit Court Judge ruled that his sentence will run concurrently.

According to the Herald-Journal, 7th Circuit Solicitor Barry Barnette said Schomer told authorities that he and Bryan Marion Holder were target shooting with guns that Holder stole from a home on Bethesda Road on June 28, 2012. Schomer said that Holder, 21, of Boiling Springs, began shooting at people with a stolen 30.06 rifle about 1:30 a.m. July 2 from a field beside the Raceway gas station at 8671 Asheville Highway. One woman was shot and two other men escaped the shooting.

A jury found Holder guilty in May of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature for one victim's shooting, two counts of first-degree assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. He received a 40-year sentence.

Schomer testified against Holder. Barnette told Culbertson that Schomer also cooperated with law enforcement.
