A Hempstead man was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years to life in prison for fatally shooting a 23-year-old man four years ago.

Michael Gibson was convicted of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in June at Nassau County court.

The 35-year-old gunman shot and killed Joseph Bolling, also of Hempstead, following a fight outside the Seduccion night club at 3 a.m. on Sept. 3, 2011.

The victim was taken to Winthrop-University Hospital, where he died. Authorities apprehended Gibson in North Carolina three months later.
