CAMERON — Quentel Antwain Westbrook was sentenced to five years Tuesday for an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge.

Westbrook, 26, of Cameron, will servie his sentence in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice after he pleaded guilty to the second-degree felony.

He was sentenced in the 20th Judicial District Court with Judge John Youngblood presiding.

A sentence of two to 20 years in prison was possible for Westbrook.

Westbrook admitted he fired a gun, later determined to be stolen from Pensacola, Fla., and fired it at a man he believed had sex with his girlfriend, a probable cause affidavit said.

The incident happened just after midnight Jan. 26 on North Fannin Avenue near C.H. Yoe High School. A caller heard shots fired from a vehicle, went outside and saw a man drive away in a Cadillac. He said Westbrook was the driver.

Westbrook said he fired at the man involved with his girlfriend.

The gun was found inside a box at the residence, and Westbrook was a convicted felon who wasn’t supposed to possess a firearm.
