Man Sentenced In Roller Skating Rink Shooting
PONTIAC (WWJ/AP) – One of three men accused of firing on a group of nearly 300 people at a pre-Christmas roller-skating party has been sentenced to 21 to 70 years in prison.
Tre-Andis Jamison of Pontiac was sentenced Wednesday in Oakland County Circuit Court. Judge James Alexander said the 21-year-old participated in a “cowardly act” that wounded six people. Jamison was convicted Aug. 7 on multiple charges connected to the Dec. 23 shooting at the Rolladium Skating Center in Waterford Township.
Robert Lee German, 19, of Pontiac faces possible life in prison on charges including six counts each of assault with intent to murder. He was arrested last week and faces a pre-exam conference Monday.
Eighteen-year-old Cheyenne Ingram faces more than a dozen counts, including conspiracy to commit murder. He’ll be sentenced Sept.12.
Police said the three gunmen walked into the rink and sprayed bullets into a crowd of young people gathered for a holiday party. They believe the shooting stemmed from tensions between two Pontiac-based gangs.
Investigators continue to seek tips in the case. Anyone who witnessed the incident, or had any information regarding it, is asked to call the Waterford Police Department at 248-618-7531.
