BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- A Detroit-area man charged in the shooting of a Ferris State University student at an off-campus apartment in February will spend up to six years in prison.
TV stations WPBN-WTOM report (http://bit.ly/1uZblx5 ) that 21-year-old DeCory Downing was sentenced Monday.
Downing, of Macomb County, had pleaded no contest to two counts each of assault with a dangerous weapon and having a firearm in a felony. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt, but is treated as such for sentencing.
He originally faced 17 charges, including attempted murder.
The university has said that Downing wasn't a student at the school in Big Rapids. The victim was treated at a Grand Rapids hospital and released.
