FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of robbing a Fargo convenience store and a liquor store at gunpoint last fall has been sentenced to serve two years in prison and three years on probation.

Nineteen-year-old Mason Peet of Ponsford, Minn., admitted pointing a gun at clerks at a Stop-N-Go store on Oct. 26, and the next day firing a gun into the ceiling at Royal Liquors to scare customers and employees. He pleaded guilty to felony robbery and terrorizing.

Two other suspects were arrested in the Stop-N-Go robbery. Their cases are still proceeding.
