Man gets 6 years in prison in Denver slaying

DENVER (AP) - A man convicted in a fatal shooting at a restaurant near Denver's 16th Street pedestrian mall has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Forty-two-year-old Yan De Yang received the maximum sentence Friday.

Jurors convicted him earlier this year of manslaughter and third-degree assault in the death of 29-year-old Lloyd Runningbear, who was shot in 2009 after a confrontation inside Yang's sushi restaurant.
