2nd Defendant Sentenced In Roller Rink Shooting
PONTIAC (WWJ/AP) – The second of three men accused of firing on a group of about 300 people at a pre-Christmas roller-skating party has been sentenced to 21 to 70 years in prison.
Cheyenne Ingramm, 18, of Pontiac was sentenced Wednesday by Oakland County Circuit Judge James Alexander. Ingram was convicted of conspiracy to murder and other charges.
The charges stem from a Dec. 23 shooting at the rink, located on Highland Rd. near Pontiac Lake Rd. in Waterford Township, about 25 miles northwest of Detroit.
The private holiday party billed as an 18 and up “Roll Up” was coming to a close around 1:45 a.m. when the three men entered the building and fired handguns from the snack bar area out onto the skating floor area. Nearly 300 people were inside the rink.
Investigators say the shooting stemmed from two rival gangs out of Pontiac, one known as the “Goon Squad,” and the other as “1st Enfantry.” One of the victims shot was an intended target and rival to the shooters, and was previously shot by rivals in a similar incident at a nightclub in Pontiac back in December 2010.
All six people shot at the Waterford Township rink survived their wounds.
Co-defendant, 21-year-old Tre-Andis Jamison of Pontiac was sentenced Sept. 5 and also got 21 to 70 years.
The third suspect, 19-year-old Robert Lee German of Pontiac was arrested last month and now awaits trial on six counts of assault with intent to murder. His next court date is Monday in Waterford district court.
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.
