A Charlotte man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for discharging a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
Gerald Wayne Hairston, 30, got into a fight with a patron at a Pineville restaurant in April 2012.
Hairston then went to his vehicle, got a gun and fired two to four shots at a group of people outside the restaurant, authorities said.
Police said they found a pistol, ammunition and drugs in Hairston’s car. Steve Lyttle
