    Two brothers who admitted their roles in a shooting that occurred outside a Trenton church where another shooting victim's funeral was being staged are now headed to state prison.

    Twenty-year-old Samuel Vincent received a seven-year sentence, while his 22-year-old brother, Samier, got a five-year term. The two Trenton residents had pleaded guilty in May to aggravated assault.

    Two men and a woman were wounded in the April 2014 shooting at Galilee Baptist Church but have recovered from their wounds. They were among more than 100 mourners who had gathered there for the funeral of a 19-year-old man.

    Another man charged in the shooting, 23-year-old Terrance Maddox, has also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault. He'll be sentenced this coming week.

    Officials have said the shooters were aiming for rival gang members.
