gen: shooting

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A southwestern Indiana man convicted of shooting five people last year outside an American Legion post has been sentenced to 43 years in prison for the attack.

Thirty-eight-year-old Keymo Johnson was sentenced Monday in the shooting, which authorities said came shortly after the Evansville man got into a fight with one of the later shooting victims inside the American Legion post’s bar.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that a Vanderburgh County jury convicted Johnson in November on six felony counts in the October 2019 shooting at the legion hall near downtown Evansville.

Five people were wounded, with three of them suffering serious injuries.
