Man who shot acquaintance in Fallbrook sentenced to 26 years in prison

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A man who shot a 19-year-old male acquaintance in Fallbrook, then stole the cell phone of the victim's girlfriend, was sentenced Friday to nearly 26 years in state prison.

Thomas Mark Hall, 27, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to assault with a deadly weapon, firearm and robbery charges stemming from the Feb. 15 shooting.

The defendant - armed with two handguns stolen from a safe-- went into a residence where the victim and his girlfriend were sleeping and kicked the victim awake, said prosecutor Marlene Coyne.

Hall pointed one of the guns at the victim and shot him in the left side of his face, Coyne said.

A motive for the shooting was unclear.
