He said he was just protecting himself but a jury didn't agree.
Now a security guard involved in a deadly shooting at an after-hours club in Allentown is heading to prison.
Andrew Gesslein, 43, of Tilden Township, Berks County was sentenced Tuesday to five to ten years behind bars.
He was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in April.
Police say Gesslein shot and killed Michael Randolph, an aspiring rapper.
It happened in April of last year at the North End Republican Club in Allentown.
Gesslein said he was defending himself.
He thought Randoph was pulling a gun but police never found a gun on Randolph.
