Jarrod Gauna Sentenced For April 2013 Shooting During Meth Sale
A Lubbock man has been sentenced for shooting a person at a convenience store in April.
Jarrod Charles Gauna was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 10 years in federal prison on a federal firearm conviction.
Gauna pleaded guilty to one count of using, carrying, and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a drug trafficking crime.
According to court documents, Gauna told a person that he needed to get out of town because he had shot someone who had stolen methamphetamine from him.
Gauna told another person that he was getting ready to sell one-eighth of an ounce of methamphetamine to an individual when he grabbed the drugs and ran. Gauna said he fired at the person and possibly hit him in the foot.
Investigators say that Gauna and others had disposed of the firearm by burying it in cement, but investigators retrieved the firearm from a bucket of cement and identified it as the one used in the shooting.
The Lubbock Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives conducted the investigation.
