Winona Man Sentence For Shooting Rochester Man
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Winona man has been ordered to prison for his involvement in a shooting in Rochester last year.
Dashaun Pittman, who will work his 24th birthday tomorrow behind bars, was sentenced today to five years in prison for his conviction on a felony charge for illegal possession of a firearm or ammunition. He entered into a plea agreement in August that resulted in the dismissal of a second-degree assault charge.
The criminal complaint alleged Pittman shot a 22-year-old man in the leg during a confrontation outside a home in the 600 block of Circle Court Southwest in Rochester. The victim identified Pittman as the shooter and told investigators a second man, 29-year-old Davoren Broussard of Brooklyn Park, was pointing a gun at his face and threatening him just before he was shot.
Pittman told investigators that he was waving a gun around when it "accidentally went off." Broussard has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of threats of violence and is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
