FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - An Allen County man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after a judge sentenced him to 125 years in connection to a triple shooting in 2018.

Travon Fincher, 22, was found guilty of murder, attempted murder, and a firearm enhancement charges back in February.

These charges stem from the shooting in the 800 block of Madison St. on August 30, 2018.

In court on Friday, the judge handed him the 125-year sentence.

He also received 563 days of Jail Credit. 

One person died in the shooting and two others were injured, one critically and the other seriously.
