Two men have pleaded guilty to a shooting in which a 60-year-old woman was critically injured.

During the shooting, which happened in December 2012, the two men meant to shoot another person, according to Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich.

Anthony Gardner, 19, and Gerius Bullox, 18, were each sentenced to a total of nine years in prison. They have been charged with aggravated assault, criminally attempted first degree murder, employment of a firearm with intention to commit a felony, and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon.

Back in Dec. 2012, Gardner and Bullox fired at another teen with whom they had been arguing near South Parkway and Preston Street.

One of the bullets struck the 60-year-old woman, who was driving past the fight, in the side of her neck, causing her to crash into two parked cars.

The woman was hospitalized in critical condition.

Another stray round struck the car of another woman, but she was uninjured.
