A Shreveport man who was convicted of attempted manslaughter after shooting two children has won a partial victory at the appellate court level. Parole was not an option before, but it could be now.

17-year-old Orlando Glover was found guilty in January of 2011 in the January 2007 shooting of two children.

It happened in the 4300 block of Illinois street. That's where Glover got into an argument with another man, pulled out a gun and started shooting. Two children in a nearby apartment were hit, but they survived.

In the appeal, Glover argues his sentence was too harsh, because it puts him in jail for most of his life.

On Wednesday, the Second Circuit Court of Appeal ruled that Glover's sentence of 35 years without parole was an error on the court's part. His sentence of 35 years stands, but it has changed to include eligibility for parole.
