Key, 22, of the 4600 block of Heatherwind Drive, was sentenced to serve three years, with two years of probation, of a five-year term for carrying a handgun without a license and one year for pointing a firearm at his girlfriend, firing a shot in the air Sept. 10, while a police officer had Key under surveillance, according to a probable-cause affidavit filed in the case.
