FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  The man who admitted to shooting a woman in the stomach last year was sentenced Friday.

Judge John Surbeck handed Jamarcus Cain a 6-year sentence with three of those years suspended.  Cain had pleaded guilty to a new felony domestic battery charge related to Sept. 18, 2016 shooting that left Brittney Bruce critically hurt. Bruce survived the shooting.

Police said they believed the attack was a result of a domestic dispute.  Cain stated in a previous court hearing that he shot Bruce “on purpose.”

Other charges of attempted murder, aggravated battery, domestic battery, burglary and possession of a handgun without a license were dropped as part of his deal with prosecutors.
