A man tried to take drugs during a deal at a Wisconsin gas station. Then the gunfire started.
His decision nearly cost him his life; it cost a teen his.
Now, the man responsible for the deadly turn of events will head to prison for more than a decade.
Recently, a Milwaukee County judge sentenced Daveion Wilson to 13 years in prison and another 10 years of extended supervision, according to Fox 6. He previously pleaded guilty to reckless homicide for the killing of 19-year-old Lawrence Jones.
The plea deal saw other charges dropped.
On April 1, 2020, Wilson met Jones and another person at a gas station, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The men did not know each other before the meeting and Jones and the other person offered to sell Wilson marijuana from their car.
Wilson got in the car, saw the drugs and pointed a gun, according to the report. He demanded the money.
A witness reported that Wilson said, “'I'll take all of that, just give me what you got, don't do anything stupid,” according to Fox 6.
The dealers gave up the drugs and Jones pulled a gun from his waistband, the report noted.
Both Jones and Wilson started firing at each other, according to the Journal Sentinel. Jones was shot twice and died at the scene.
Wilson limped back to his own vehicle and tried to flee the area, according to the newspaper. He eventually crashed into a firetruck about a block away. Firefighters found Wilson had been shot in the chest.
