A Lewisberry man will serve up to 10 years in prison for a shooting incident outside a Dauphin County nightclub in October 2016.

Jeffrey Odom, 31, was ordered to serve five to ten years in state prison at his sentencing last week. He had pleaded guilty to charges of reckless endangerment and illegal possession of a firearm.

The district attorney’s office said Odom got into an argument at The Cabin, in Reed Township, and fired 11 shots from a handgun as he sat in the passenger seat of a fleeing vehicle.

Odom was arrested in February 2017 after a traffic stop in York County. Prosecutors said he still had the 9mm handgun that fired the shots at The Cabin, and he was not allowed to have a gun because of a 2013 burglary conviction in Cumberland County.

At sentencing, prosecutors said drug abuse led to the burglary conviction. They said Odom repeatedly violated his parole in that case and did not overcome his drug addiction.

Odom also shot up an ex-girlfriend’s car in Lancaster County seven days before the shooting at The Cabin. He recently received two to six years in state prison for that crime.
