WACO, Texas (AP) - A convicted robber has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for the 2013 killing of one Waco teenager and the wounding of another.

Aveaon Roshun Anderson was sentenced Friday in Waco after pleading guilty to murder and aggravated assault.

Officials believe Anderson and the victim, 17-year-old Dhaodrique Eastland, knew each other. They allegedly had an altercation prior to the April 2013 shootings in the parking lot of a Waco smoke shop.

The gunfire left 19-year-old Rahideame “Ray” Washington wounded.

Investigators believe the 23-year-old Anderson fled to Dallas and carjacked and robbed a man.

Anderson in June 2013 was convicted of aggravated robbery, evading arrest in a vehicle and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Anderson was serving eight years in prison when he was arrested for the Waco shootings.
