Dante Parrish Sentenced, Victims ID'd, & Broken Metro Dreams

Life without parole for rapist/teenage killer Dante Parrish. Parrish was convicted of murdering 15-year-old Jason Mattison less than a year after the "Innocence Project" helped him secure his release from prison after a 1999 murder conviction.

Just a few days after the first police involved killing of the year, another man, 29-year-old George Wells, has been shot to death by police after "drawing a sharp weapon" on an officer.

A multitude of shootings, resulting in one death this weekend. This years 43rd victim has been id'd as Marcus Williams, 29. Williams was shot to death in a car in the 1000 block of E. 22nd St. The years 42nd victim has been id'd as 59-year-old Chauncey Hardy, killed in an apparent "retaliatory shooting."*
