PHOENIX, Ariz. — Two Navajo Nation men have been sentenced to seven years in prison on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon.

The sentencing happened on Tuesday, February 19, and involves Harry Tsosie, 48, of Blue Gap, Arizona and Jeremy Tsosie, 38, of Smoke Signal, Arizona.

In January of 2017, Harry and Jeremy Tsosie tracked down their victim and shot them in the chest in the Whippoorwill Housing area.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Navajo Nation Department of Law Enforcement handled this case's investigation.

After their seven year sentences, the two men will have a three year term of supervised release.
