A 19-year-old Severn man was sentenced to six years in prison in Anne Arundel Circuit Court yesterday for shooting a teen-ager during a feud last June in Pioneer City.

Judge Clayton Greene Jr. also sentenced Curtis M. Williams of the 8300 block of Pioneer Drive to five years' probation for the June 20, 1995, shooting of Royce Sollers.

Williams was convicted by a jury March 28 of assault with intent to maim for shooting Sollers while the victim stood talking to friends about 4: 30 p.m. near Indian Drive and Candlewick Court.

Sollers of the 1700 block of Richfield Drive in Severn was flown to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center after he was shot in the lower right side of his chest with a small-caliber handgun, said Detective David P. McDonald of the Anne Arundel County police.

Assistant State's Attorney Fred Paone said Sollers identified Williams as the assailant. Williams turned himself in July 2 after police obtained a warrant for his arrest, according to court records.

Greene sentenced Williams to eight years for assault with intent to maim and to a concurrent eight-year term for using a handgun in the commission of a felony. He suspended two years of the sentence.
