Greenville, S.C. (WSPA) – A man was sentenced to 20 years for shooting at a vehicle and leading police on a chase.

Braxton Lavon Hare, 19, was convicted of aggravated assault and failure to stop for a blue light.

In September 2015, Hare and his passenger, William Hunter, got into a fight with another driver near downtown Greenville.

That fight resulted in shots being fired and hitting the other person’s vehicle.

Later that day, Hare and Hunter were in a high-speed chase with police.

The chase ended when they crashed into another car. The driver of the other car was hospitalized.

William Hunter, the passenger, pled guilty and testified in Hare’s trial.

Hunter received an 8-year sentence.
