A South Carolina teen, who a prosecutor said was "seduced" by the Islamic State group and planned to shoot US soldiers, was sentenced on Tuesday to five years in juvenile prison on a gun possession charge, the local Herald newspaper reported.

The 16-year-old, who was not named due to his age, had conspired with another person to rob a gun shop and shoot soldiers in neighboring North Carolina, 16th Circuit Solicitor Kevin Brackett said in a recording of the Darlington County family court hearing.

"He had been sort of seduced by the radical Islamic ideology that has been put forth by the group in the Middle East known as ISIS... and that it was his desire to join them," Brackett said in the video published online by the Herald.
