YUMA, AZ (AP) -

A 40-year-old Yuma County man faces 36 years in prison after being sentenced for shooting into a Yuma-area home whose residents had obtained a harassment injunction against him.

Christopher Michael Cartier was convicted in November of two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Under the sentenced imposed Monday, he must serve two consecutive sentences of 18 years each.

Two residents of the home reported that three rounds were fired into the home shortly after they woke up on Jan. 12, 2012.

The Yuma Daily Sun reports that court records indicate that Cartier said he steadied his rifle on his truck to aim while aiming at windows when he saw silhouettes.

Cartier was arrested when sheriff's deputies pulled over a vehicle matching the description of one used by the shooter.
