Sentencing for Okla. shooter who injured deputy

Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated from 9 a.m. sentencing.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A 25-year-old man who was convicted of shooting into a crowded Tulsa plaza in 2012 and wounding a sheriff's deputy and a bystander is due to be sentenced.

Andrew Dennehy is due in Tulsa district court Monday. He was found guilty in January by jurors, who rejected an insanity claim argued by his defense team.

Dennehy's family had argued that Dennehy was a paranoid schizophrenic plagued by bizarre thoughts and delusions, and that he should be treated at a hospital, not sent to prison.

Prosecutors said Dennehy understood the charges against him.

Dennehy wandered barefoot onto the plaza between the Tulsa County courthouse and Tulsa Central Library in 2012 and fired a handgun -- sending people fleeing in panic and injuring the deputy and bystander.

Deputies returned fire, wounding Dennehy.
