KANSAS CITY, Mo. (CBS/AP) A heated argument over hot sauce ended in murder.

A Kansas City man has been sentenced to 33 years in prison for killing a man in a hail of gunfire during a melee that erupted when someone threw a bottle of hot sauce.

The Kansas City Star reported on its Web site that 29-year-old Jarvis T. Williams was sentenced Thursday in Jackson County Circuit Court for second-degree murder, three counts of assault and four counts of armed criminal action.

Prosecutors allege he fired more than 20 rounds from an assault rifle into a car on Oct. 23, 2005, killing 22-year-old Gary Scott and wounding three others.

Another man accused in the shooting, Arthur Timley, died in a shooting four months later.

A message that The Associated Press left Thursday night with a public defender listed in court records as representing Williams was not immediately returned.
