A man who fired a bullet outside a Warren bar last August that ripped through a neighboring home and struck a sleeping woman in the head was sent to prison Wednesday for 14 years.

Antonio Price, 27, of Arthur Drive N.W., pleaded guilty Wednesday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court to felonious assault and firing a gun into a home at about 4 a.m. outside the Olympic Inn bar.

The bullet struck Pamela Dial in the head while she slept. She went through numerous surgeries following the incident.

The bullet went through her wall and pillow.

Price was also charged with aggravated robbery and shooting into a different for an Aug. 17 robbery of a man on Jackson Street S.W.

Police arrested Price and Dwayne Bruce III, 24, on suspicion that they robbed a 20-year-old man at gunpoint and went through his pockets.

At about the same time, a home belonging to a relative of the man they are accused of robbing was shot up.

Bruce pleaded guilty in April to robbery charges, having a weapon as a felon and discharging a firearm. He agreed to testify against Price if necessary. Bruce also pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court to being a felon with a gun for the incident.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on the federal crime on Oct. 2 by Judge David Dowd in Akron.
