— A Wake County jury on Friday found a teen guilty of first-degree burglary, second-degree kidnapping, larceny and possession of stolen property in a Dec. 11 home invasion on Dorety Place in Raleigh. 

Shabar Master Marshall, 17, was sentenced to 8 to 12 years in prison. 

Marshall faces a dozen other charges in connection with four other burglaries in Raleigh.

He was arrested Jan. 7, shortly after police responded to a similar home invasion in which a man and his wife awoke in the middle of the night to find Marshall and his brother in their bedroom on East Lane Street.

The wife was able to get away to call 911 when her husband was shot. He is now paralyzed.

Marshall, and his brother, Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, face numerous charges in that case and could go to trial next year.

Prosecutors said they hoped a conviction in the Dec. 11 case would result in tougher sentences when he is tried on the other charges.
