Man Gets Sentenced for Shooting at Va. College

Posted: Updated:

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) - A Christiansburg man will serve 38 years in prison for shooting and wounding two women at a community college inside an area mall.

Media outlets report that 19-year-old Neil Allan MacInnis was sentenced Wednesday in Montgomery County Circuit Court to 68 years in prison, with 30 years suspended.

He had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of aggravated malicious wounding and two counts of using a firearm in a felony.

In April 2013, MacInnis entered the satellite campus of New River Community College in the New River Valley Mall and shot the women. He was subdued by an off-duty security guard and Christiansburg police.

At sentencing, the judge said that despite Macinnis' mental illness, his actions were "cold and calculated."
