WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

A man charged with robbing and shooting a woman will spend thirty to sixty years behind bars.

Darnell Lewis received his sentence Monday.

Police say Lewis pulled out a gun and demanded Barbara Hausknecht give him her purse then shot her when she refused.

That was nearly two years ago, in front of a shopping center on MacArthur Road in Allentown.

In July Lewis was found guilty of attempted homicide and other charges.
