MINNEAPOLIS - A Minneapolis teen who admitted to fatally shooting another 16-year-old in June was sentenced Tuesday morning.
Malcom Maghundi Jackson was given the maximum sentence of 306 months. Jackson, 16, was tried as an adult for the June 1 shooting death of Trequan Sykes.
Jackson, who was a student at Minneapolis South High School, had admitted to shooting Sykes twice in a south Minneapolis alley after a fight with Sykes' brother.
Sykes was found shot in an alley behind a duplex on the 2900 block of Bloomington Avenue in south Minneapolis on Friday, June 1. He died at Hennepin County Medical Center.
"This is a tragic and senseless case," said Tom Arneson, managing attorney for the Hennepin County Attorney's Juvenile Prosecution Division. "One 16-year-old-boy is dead and another is going to prison for a long time."
