A 24-year-old man has been sentenced to 24 years in prison for his part in a Lakewood shooting.
Dominic Pacheco-Donelson appeared Monday in Jefferson District Court where he was sentenced for his role in an April 4 shooting and attempted robbery in an apartment complex parking lot at West 14th Avenue and Garrison Street, according to the district attorney’s office.
On the day of the incident, Pacheco-Donelson and co-defendants Damon Porter and Yazmine Hunter were in a stolen car when they followed the victim who had driven into his apartment lot. Pacheco-Donelson was driving the stolen vehicle, according to a news release.
As the victim got out of his car, Porter and Hunter approached him. Porter, who was armed, demanded the victim’s property. Porter grabbed the victim’s phone and demanded his car keys. At first, the victim did not see Porter’s gun, according to the release, and Porter shot the man from close range, about two-feet away.
Porter and Hunter jumped back into the stolen car, and Pacheco-Donelson drove off. Porter and Pacheco-Donelson were arrested two days later. Hunter, 25, is at-large, and a warrant is outstanding for her arrest.
Pacheco-Donelson pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, possession of a weapon by a previous offender, both felonies, and one violent crime count. He had provided the gun used in the shooting and was on federal parole for gun trafficking at the time of the shooting, prosecutors said. This was his sixth felony conviction.
Porter has been charged with attempted murder and other criminal counts in this case. He has a court hearing scheduled for Nov. 9.
