A 21-year-old central Illinois man has been sentenced to 120 years in prison for a shooting that injured four people at a party.

Ross Johnson of Normal was sentenced Monday after being convicted of attempted murder, home invasion and aggravated discharge of a firearm.

Authorities say dozens of people were attending the October 2012 party in Bloomington when Johnson opened fire during a gang-related dispute.
