Harrison was accused of shooting one man in the face and one man in the leg. Both survived.

One of the victims was “terrified that he might die” in the shooting, records say.

“I was having a hard time seeing,” the victim shot in the face said. “Everything was blurry and spinning.”

Harrison will also be on probation for five years.
