PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for a 2014 shooting outside a Portland strip club that killed one person and wounded four others.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/YOBVKe ) that investigators say Jontae Mixon felt disrespected after an argument outside the club and responded by shooting into a crowd. He pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and other charges and was sentenced Monday.

Killed in the July 5, 2014, shooting was Hahrahcio Branch.

Investigators say Mixon had argued with another man and the man punched Mixon in the face. Someone else ripped off his gold necklace.

Police say Mixon went and sat in his car for a few minutes before driving up next to the crowd and opening fire.



Mixon apologized in court.
