WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) - Tevin Montgomery, 21, of Washington, D.C., has been sentenced to three years and four months in prison after a shooting last summer near an educational center, according to U.S. Attorney Ronald C. Machen Jr.
Montgomery pled guilty in October to a charge of assault with intent to commit robbery and a firearms offense. After his prison term, Montgomery will be placed on three years of supervised release. The judge also ordered that Montgomery meet certain conditions during his supervised release, including taking anger management courses, completing vocational training, and getting drug treatment.
According to court documents, Montgomery was armed with a gun when he tried to rob a 19-year-old man on the afternoon of Aug. 15, behind the Takoma Educational Center, in the 7000 block of Piney Branch Road NW.
During a struggle, the gun went off, and the victim was shot in the shoulder. Montgomery fled the scene and was later arrested by police.
