A man who fired shots injuring a patron in a Pleasanton pub in January was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison, police announced today. Jason Anthony Landes, 21, pleaded no contest to assault with a firearm for the Jan. 26 shooting, according to police.
Witnesses saw Landes pacing inside the Redcoats British Pub & Restaurant at 336 St. Mary St. before hearing popping sounds coming from a rear stairwell just before 1 a.m. Landes was firing a silver handgun at the pub’s ceiling. Most of the bullets only hit the ceiling but one hit a male patron in the left buttock, police said. The victim was at first unaware that he had been wounded until a friend noticed him bleeding. He was taken to a hospital for treatment, police said. Landes fled the scene before police arrived but was arrested later that day.
