NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — One of four men charged in connection with a 2018 shooting that injured one man in Norfolk has pleaded guilty.

Caleb Mourning was arrested following a shooting in the Campostella area of the city in April 2018. A man was shot in the hand.

Court records show Mourning pleaded guilty to an unlawful wounding charge in the Norfolk Circuit Court. He was sentenced to five years in prison, but had all but the time he has already served suspended.

The remaining charges against Mourning were nolle prossed, or set aside.

The other three suspects arrested — Treyshon Eason, Malik Brown and Karron Dessus — are scheduled to go on trial Oct. 9.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly reported Caleb Mourning was sentenced to five years in prison, with none of the time suspended.
