    SUFFOLK

    A gunbattle that killed one man and threatened a house full of children resulted in a 10-year prison sentence Wednesday for one of the shooters.

    Travis Markee Boone, 19, pleaded guilty in August to attempted murder, use of a firearm in a felony and maliciously shooting into an occupied dwelling. He received 15 years of supervised probation in addition to the prison time.

    Two homes, one with seven children inside, were struck in a hail of gunfire in the early morning of Jan. 7 on Second Avenue downtown. Neighbors counted 21 shots.

    "You're talking a gangland shooting that you'd see in the L.A. Times," prosecutor Jim Wiser said at Boone's sentencing.

    The shooting started when Boone and two accomplices confronted Samuel L. Eure outside his home. One of the men with Boone, Darius Jermol Simmons, brought an AK-47 assault rifle.

    Eure returned fire, striking Lamon Vanshawn Hayes, who died, and Boone. Prosecutors believe Eure fired in self-defense and did not charge him.

    Simmons pleaded guilty Monday to attempted murder and other charges and is to be sentenced Feb. 6

    I notice they still love using the word "assault" rifle. With only 21 shots fired i'd imagine it was actually a semi-auto.

    Yup, why aren't parole boards held responsible for their actions???

    In Washington any death that results in a death is a capitol crime, Which is kinda nice if you ever have to kill a BG you get to see his partners in crime fry for his death.

    the only problem is that it costs more to get the executed these days than it does for them to just get life in prison which i think is really stupid. 45 cents for a bullet (priced high) will take care of it quick. especially if there were witnesses!
