BOISE, Idaho. (AP) – A Fruitland, Idaho man was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison in the shooting death of a man in Ontario, Oregon.

CBS2 reports according to court documents, Jaime Anthony Escobedo fatally shot Larry Fuentes, Jr. of Portland in a restaurant parking lot.

Escobedo as part of a plea deal pleaded guilty on April 30 to manslaughter on the basis of having intentionally caused the death of the victim while under extreme emotional disturbance.

Police were called to the restaurant on Nov. 18, 2018 on a report of a dispute between two men.

A lengthy police pursuit followed the shooting.

Police from Nyssa, Oregon eventually took Escobedo into custody without incident.
