The man who shot singer Marc Cohn in Denver last year has been sentenced to 36 years in prison.
Joseph Yacteen had pleaded to attempted first-degree murder. Authorities said he fired a gun into a van carrying Cohn's band in a Denver parking garage during an attempted carjacking.
The bullet grazed tour manager Thomas Dube before it lodged in Cohn's temple. Both were treated and released from a hospital the next day.
Cohn had a hit with "Walking in Memphis" and won a Grammy in 1991.
