A view of the scene where the alleged home invasion and resulting shooting took place in the Manuta section of the city.

Barron Alexander, the son of convicted Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, was sentenced Monday for burglarizing a college student's home last year.

Alexander, who changed his last name from Gosnell following his father's arrest, received 11 to 23 months in prison as well as eight years probation. Alexander had pleaded guilty to burglary, aggravated assault and other related offenses.

On June 4, 2014, Alexander broke into a rowhome along the 3700 block of Brandywine Avenue in the Mantua section of the city.

Police say he went into the house three times to steal cash and electronics. The last time he entered the home, police say one of the three college students living there woke up.

One of the students got into a struggle with Alexander as another opened fire on him. Alexander was hit multiple times. Alexander received treatment at the hospital before his arrest.
