TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A Tucson man has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in a 2018 fatal shooting.

Pima County prosecutors say Anthony Rene Fimbres was sentenced Monday.

He was convicted last November in connection with an April 2018 drive-by shooting that killed 51-year-old Jesus Castro and wounded the victim's son.

Tucson police said Castro was sitting in his truck talking to his two sons when a vehicle pulled up and someone opened fire.

Castro died at a hospital, but his injured son recovered.
