A Poway man who fired a gunshot through his apartment wall during an argument with his brother , missing him but killing a sleeping neighbor, was sentenced Friday to 21 years in state prison.

Manuula Save, 23, pleaded guilty in San Diego Superior Court last month to voluntary manslaughter and a gun-use allegation for the Aug. 17, 2019, death of Michael Walker.

Walker, 38, was in bed and asleep when he was shot at about 1:45 a.m. by a bullet that traveled through a bedroom wall in the defendant’s apartment and into the victim’s unit at the Sofi Poway apartment complex.

Walker was hit once in the midsection and died at a hospital about an hour later.

Save was facing a murder count in the case prior to his plea.

Testimony from his preliminary hearing in 2020 indicated that the shooting stemmed from a verbal and physical fight between Save and his older brother, which started over the defendant using his brother’s phone charger.

Prosecutors said Save fired the gun in his sibling’s general direction, penetrating the wall and striking Walker.
