OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man convicted of first-degree murder in a shooting death at a party following a Miley Cyrus concert last year has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1BRFh1M ) 24-year-old LaRon M. Jones was also sentenced Wednesday to two terms of 10 to 20 years on weapons counts. He was found guilty in January of the slaying of 21-year-old Brandon Samuels in March 2014.

Police say a fight broke out at a house party, and when the fight escalated, Jones and others got into cars to leave. They say Jones returned to the end of the home’s driveway and began firing shots into the air and then at the house.

At the sentencing hearing, Jones said he hopes the prison term makes him “better, not bitter.”
