MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Shelby County judge sentenced a man to 94 years in prison for fatally shooting one man and wounding five others after he told the judge that he shot in self-defense and would do it again.
Terrance Lewis was convicted of second degree murder and attempted second degree murder last month and did not express remorse during his sentencing Friday over the shooting in 2007 in South Memphis that killed one man and wounded five others, including a 10-year-old boy and a 77-year-old woman.
The shooting occurred during a July Fourth holiday party at an apartment building when a brawl started among more than a dozen people.
Lewis testified that he was shot at, so he returned fire and didn't think about hitting other people (http://bit.ly/yU34fo ).
