Man sentenced to 2 decades in prison for 2018 Minneapolis shooting that injured 2
A man was sentenced Monday to more than two decades in prison in connection to a 2018 shooting in Minneapolis that injured two people.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Norris Deshon Andrews, 34, was sentenced to more than 21 years (262 months) in prison for illegal possession of a firearm.
The attorney's office said police officers responded to a report of shots fired in the area of 25th and Girard Avenue North on May 15, 2018. A witness later identified Andrews as the shooter.
As proven at trial, two people were found with gunshot wounds near Plymouth Avenue North just over an hour later. The attorney's office said surveillance footage showed Andrews drive up to the scene in the same vehicle spotted at the previous shooting, get out and have a verbal altercation with several people before pulling out a semi-automatic pistol and firing four shots, hitting two people. He then fled the scene but was later located and arrested.
In addition to his prison sentence, Andrews was also sentenced to five years of supervised release.
