Man gets 43 years in shooting of man outside nightclub
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A man convicted in the fatal shooting of a man outside a Tacoma nightclub has been sentenced to over 43 years in prison.
The News Tribune reports Marshall Wilson, one of two men tried for the death of 22-year-old Daquan Foster, was sentenced Friday in Pierce County Superior Court.
Wilson was convicted of murder, assault, and unlawful gun possession.
The court ordered a mistrial regarding the other man charged, Randy Donaldson, after jurors failed to come to a decision.
Charging papers say Foster was leaving the club with his wife and friends Oct. 28, 2017 when some sort of argument started with Wilson, who was outside, as was Donaldson.
Documents say Foster was shot several times and died at a hospital. His wife was shot in the thumb.
Wilson in court maintained that he was innocent and said his heart goes out to the family for their loss.
