ST. HELENS, OR (KPTV) -

A St. Helens man was sentenced to 7 1/2 years in prison for shooting a neighbor during a dispute in March 2015.

Robert Simms Goin was convicted on charges of attempted murder, first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon in August. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Police said Goin, who was 71 years old at the time, shot a 75-year-old neighbor in the abdomen on the 35000 block of Oakwood Drive.

Investigators said Goin had confronted some underage neighbors when Albert Schneider stepped in. Goin then shot Schneider.

Another neighbor rushed in, disarmed Goin and provided aid to Schneider. When officers arrived, they found the neighbor holding Goin to the ground.

Jacob Jones said he used his martial arts training to subdue Goin. He grabbed the gun from Goin's hand and threw it.

"My blood was going, my emotions were going and my only thought was this guy's got to go down," Jones told FOX 12 last year. 

Along with more than seven years in prison, Goin was sentenced to serve three years of post-prison supervision.
