ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County prosecutors say a man has been sentenced in a fatal shooting that took place after a toddler’s memorial service.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old Sequan Williamson was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years in a shooting that killed 29-year-old Anthony Hollis and injured a woman.

Authorities say Williamson was at a cook-out in southwest Atlanta after a toddler’s memorial service in July 2013 when he asked Hollis to leave. Prosecutors say Williamson then brandished a handgun and shot Hollis in his chest. A woman who was standing nearby with her children was also grazed by a bullet.

Williamson fled the scene with several other men and was later identified in a photo lineup. Prosecutors say the shooting stemmed from an ongoing dispute.
