    A Barnstable, Massachusetts man has been sentenced to up to five years behind bars after pleading guilty to shooting into a house with a couple and their two young children inside.

    The Cape Cod Times reports that 21-year-old Flavio Gambarotto-Santa was also sentenced Monday to three years of probation. 

    Under a plea deal just before his trial was scheduled to start, he pleaded guilty to attempting to commit a crime, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and threatening to commit a crime. 

    Authorities say a woman in November 2014 told her husband that Gambarotto-Santa had made an offensive statement to her. They say the husband and Gambarotto-Santa later argued. 

    Authorities say the husband saw Gambarotto-Santa standing outside his Yarmouth immediately following the shooting.
