      2nd man sentenced in SC thrill shootings

      A second Spartanburg man has been sentenced in what authorities have called a plot to randomly shoot at and kill people.

      SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- A second Spartanburg man has been sentenced in what authorities have called a plot to randomly shoot at and kill people.

      The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that a judge on Thursday sentenced Mattison Tyler Schomer to serve 10 years in prison. The 18-year-old previously pleaded no contest to three counts of attempted murder.

      Schomer and another man were arrested last summer. Sheriff Chuck Wright said a 19-year-old woman was shot in the back from a field near a convenience store. Another man was shot at while pressure washing gas pumps.

      Twenty-one-year-old Bryan Marion Holder was sentenced last month to 40 years in prison. Holder said previously the pair was doing target practice but denied shooting at anyone.
