MILWAUKEE (AP) - A judge has sentenced a Milwaukee man to 55 years in prison for opening fire on a crowd.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/299Cs5E ) Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Conen handed down 25-year-old Devon Loggins’ sentence on Friday.

The May 2015 incident began as a family dispute but boiled over into a street fight. It ended with Loggins firing 15 times into the crowd. Damario Jones and Montrell Burdine were killed. Three other men were wounded. Ballistic tests showed a bullet that struck Burdine in the head came from a different gun and prosecutors still don’t know who fired that shot.

Nonetheless, a jury this past May convicted Loggins of reckless homicide and recklessly endangering safety.

The judge lamented gun violence in Milwaukee during the sentencing, saying it must stop.
