BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Two men have been sentenced to serve up to 10 ½ years in state prison each for their roles in the 2013 shooting death of a Brockton man.

The Enterprise reports (https://bit.ly/29wIhdw ) that 26-year-old Donta Hood was convicted of manslaughter and weapons charges last month and was sentenced on Monday. Twenty-four-year-old William Allen-Robinson pleaded guilty to those charges last week and was also sentenced on Tuesday.

Police found 49-year-old Charles Evans lying in a driveway in May 2013 suffering from gunshot wounds to his chest. He later died at a hospital.

Witnesses said Allen-Robinson gave Hood the gun that Hood used to shoot Evans. Investigators later found the gun wrapped in Hood’s sweatshirt.
