ST. LOUIS • A man from St. Louis who offered to sell a game system on Facebook, then robbed and shot the buyer, was sentenced to ten years in prison Wednesday, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.

The victim met Natez Fisher, 19, at a pre-arranged location, prosecutors said. Fisher got in the victim's car, pulled a gun and demanded money, they said. During a struggle over the gun, the victim was shot in the leg and Fisher fled, prosecutors said.

Fisher pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Louis in February to one count of interference with commerce by robbery.
