SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- A South Dakota man convicted on assault and escape charges has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.

Barry Allman, of Hermosa, was charged in federal court with two counts of assault resulting in serious bodily injury and one count of escape.

Authorities say the 22-year-old Allman fired a handgun into the ground three times during a May 2012 party in Parmelee. Two rounds ricocheted and injured two victims.

Allman was a fugitive for about three weeks after he was released on a furlough in late November to attend a funeral and failed to return to a Pierre jail.

U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange sentenced Allman to seven years on the assault charges and six months on the escape charge.
