A man accused of kidnapping, assaulting and shooting a woman in Minneapolis in 2018 was sentenced Tuesday.

Court records show Andre Donnell Jackson, 32, was sentenced to four years at the St. Cloud Correctional Facility and was given credit for 134 days served.

In September, Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping in exchange for the other two charges being dropped.

A criminal complaint states Jackson and Thomas punched a woman in the head, dragged her into their car, and drove away. The victim later told police Jackson struck her with a gun repeatedly, and when she jumped out of the vehicle, Jackson shot her in her left shoulder.

According to the attorney's office, "Jackson admitted to everything the victim said, and Thomas admitted to most of it."

Thomas's case is still progressing through the court system.
