A Levittown man who beat and shot at his landlord in February 2014 was sentenced Friday to 12 years in prison for attempted murder and other crimes, authorities said.

Acting Supreme Court Justice Meryl Berkowitz also sentenced Rohan Kahn, 59, to 2 1/2 years of post-release supervision.

A Nassau County jury deliberated for two days in July before finding Kahn guilty of second-degree attempted murder, first-degree reckless endangerment, third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

The afternoon of Feb. 11, 2014, Kahn was at home when he got into a fight with his 51-year-old landlord, punching and kicking him before shooting at him at least five times.

The victim hid behind his parked car as Kahn fired rounds into it, causing glass to shatter and cut the man's face, prosecutors said.

Shards of glass also hurt a 54-year-old woman who was driving by at the time. Authorities said Kahn shot into her car as the fleeing landlord tried to get inside.

Kahn surrendered after a two-hour standoff with police.

His attorney could not immediately be reached Friday.
