Elias Aguilar, the store owner who shot a shoplifter back in March, will spend 30 days in county jail.

Aguilar was sentenced Tuesday morning after pleading no contest to assault on a person with force-great bodily injury. 

In March, Aguilar shot David Carrillo, who attempted to shoplift $11 worth of items from the Azteca Market on Weedpatch Highway. Aguilar shot at Carrillo twice, hitting him once in the back. 

Along with his 30 days in jail, Aguilar was sentenced to 90 days probation. His jail time will count toward that jail time, meaning he will only have 60 days of probation once he is released.
