A Spartanburg man received a 15-year prison sentence and 5 years of probation after he admitted to shooting a woman at a local apartment complex.          

Monquez J. Young, 27, pleaded guilty to attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, discharging a firearm and use of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol. Circuit Judge Derham Cole issued a 30-year prison sentence that was suspended to 15 years of service behind bars and 5 years of probation. 

The shooting occurred June 30, 2017 at the Highland Crossing Apartments on Highland Avenue. A 29-year-old woman told police she was hanging out with Young’s sister at the home and he was invited over. 

Young was intoxicated and he ended up getting into an argument with the victim and her 10-year-old son. When Young was asked to leave, he fired a shot through a door that hit the victim’s arm and lodged in her abdomen. The victim underwent multiple surgeries as a result of the injury.
