A bounty hunter who pleaded guilty in a 2011 shooting will be sentenced Tuesday.

Demarcus McKnight, 35, is scheduled to appear in Judge Louis Daniel's courtroom to learn his fate.

He pleaded guilty in April to charges of aggravated battery, unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling and illegal use of a weapon.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office reported four men believed to be bounty hunters were at a house on Ridgewood Drive in Baton Rouge to allegedly apprehend a fugitive.

Deputies said McKnight and another man, Anthony Thomas, 28, were at the back of the house, while the other two men were at the front. Thomas opened a cracked window and McKnight pointed a gun inside. When the woman walked to the window, a shot was fired and she was hit.

Thomas pleaded guilty in March 2014 to a charge of unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling. He was sentenced to three years of probation and 40 hours of community service.
