A 27-year-old Warrington man was sentenced Tuesday to 16 to 32 years in prison for three counts of attempted murder.
James Burroughs, who had pleaded guilty in Bucks County Court, also was sentenced to 10 years of probation after his release, and he must pay his victims' medical bills, which total about $369,000.
Burroughs was arrested in November after firing a .45-caliber handgun at patrons leaving Soncino's Restaurant & Bar in Warminster. Three people were injured. Burroughs was intoxicated and suffers from an anxiety disorder, said his attorney, Sharif Abaza, and had argued with one of the victims inside the bar.
Two of the victims have ongoing medical problems, Chief Deputy District Attorney Daniel Sweeney said. Burroughs apologized to all three during the sentencing. - Liz Wagner
