A Kapaa man was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison for firing a rifle at several people during a 2009 confrontation at Kea­lia Beach.

No one was hurt.

Philip Papagayo Jr., 23, was convicted last year on firearms, reckless endangering and terroristic threatening charges.

The Kauai prosecutor’s office said Papa­gayo got into an argument with several people at Kea­lia Lookout at about 9:30 p.m. April 30, 2009.

Papagayo told the group he was going home to get a gun and “get you guys.”

The group moved to Kea­lia Beach near the north end parking lot, where Papa­gayo fired the rifle two to three times.

Papagayo was sentenced to three five-year terms but will be allowed to serve them at the same time.
