MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A Montgomery man is being sentenced to more than three years for his connection to a shooting at the Rose Supper Club.

The U.S. Department of Justice says 26-year-old Timothy Cortez Robinson was sentenced for the possession of a firearm during the shooting that happened on December 3, 2012.

United States District Court Judge Mark E. Fuller sentenced Robinson to 37 months in the Bureau of Prisons, 3 years of Supervised Release, and a $100 court assessment fee.

Robinson pleaded guilty on June 18, 2013, and agreed that in the early morning hours of December 3, 2012, he got into a gunfight with another man at the Rose Supper Club on Highland Avenue, after a verbal altercation.  

Robinson also agreed that at the time he pulled a Glock .45 that he was carrying on his hip and exchanged gunfire inside the club. Robinson had previously been convicted of a felony and was not permitted to possess a firearm.

The case was investigated by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and the Montgomery Police Department.
