Missouri man sentenced for shooting 4 women in stranded car after wedding
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A 27-year-old Missouri man was sentenced to 26 years in prison for shooting into a stranded car with four women who had just left a wedding.
The shooting in November 2016 killed one woman and severely injured the other three.
Deandre Jackson was sentenced Tuesday. He pleaded guilty in June to 10 crimes, including second-degree murder.
The Kansas City Star reports 25-year-old MarYanna Pennington died. Her sister was paralyzed from the chest down, a third woman lost the use of an arm and the fourth suffered back and abdominal injuries.
The women’s car broke down near a Kansas City cemetery after they left a wedding. Investigators say the shooting occurred after Jackson’s girlfriend and Pennington were involved in an earlier altercation.
More than 30 shell casings were found at the scene.
