Pa. man guilty in 2007 shooting in Wicomico Co.

Larry McArthur, 46, of Philadelphia, PA

A man was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to his involvement in a 2007 shooting, in Wicomico County.

The Office of the State's Attorney for Wicomico County says on Tuesday, 46-year-old Larry McArthur, of Philadelphia, PA, pleaded guilty to the charge of first degree assault. The charge stems from a shooting that happened in July 2007, in Salisbury.

On July 7, McArthur and a group of individuals went to a  Saratoga Street home and began vandalizing a vehicle belonging to one of the residents over a financial dispute. Another resident exited the house and was then chased by McArthur. At that point, the 46-year-old shot the individual twice in the back with a handgun.

Officials report that the victim eventually made a full recovery.

 McArthur was sentenced to 20 years of active incarceration in the Division of Corrections.
