A man won’t serve any additional jail time for injuring a person during a Missoula gunfire incident last fall.

Grason S. Lamb was sentenced to 20 total years, with all time suspended, in the Montana State Prison on Monday in Missoula County District Court. He pleaded no contest on Aug. 9 to one count of assault with a weapon and one count of criminal endangerment, both felonies.

He was given a 20-year sentence on the assault with a weapon charge and 10 years for the criminal endangerment charge. The two counts will run simultaneously to one another. The court also imposed a community service requirement of 200 hours per year for the next five years.

Lamb was arrested Sept. 8 on suspicion of firing shots in downtown Missoula, leaving one person wounded. Missoula police responded to gunfire at about 2 a.m. — they encountered a group of people running northbound on Ryman Street who reported to officers their friend had been shot, according to Missoula County charging documents.
