WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A man accused of firing a shot at a security guard at a Wichita store will spend 60 days in a jail work-release program.

A Sedgwick County judge on Thursday sentenced 27-year-old Jake L. Jacobs for shooting at a guard who asked him to pay for a drink he had taken inside the Burlington Coat Factory store in east Wichita. He also pointed his gun at other customers before police restrained him.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/16DKCP1 ) about 20 customers were in the store during last summer's shooting but no one was injured.

Jacobs pleaded guilty in April to two counts of aggravated assault.

His attorney says Jacobs was a methamphetamine addict who was high during the shooting. He says Jacobs has successfully completed a drug treatment program.
