RICHMOND — Twin brothers who were accused of firing several rounds at another man in downtown Richmond in April 2012 were sentenced Friday in Madison Circuit Court.

Elton and Eltron Bailey, 23, originally were charged with attempted murder in the shooting on East Main Street, which was captured on surveillance video. No one was injured in the incident.

As part of a plea deal, the Baileys pleaded guilty to first-degree wanton endangerment.
