JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — A habitual criminal has been sentenced in connection to a Lakewood shooting from April 2018.
Damon Omar Porter, 24, was sentenced Tuesday to 48 years in prison in connection to the shooting of 24-year-old William Scott on April 5, 2018 in Lakewood. He was the third person to be charged and convicted in this case.
On the day of the crime, Porter and his co-defendants, Dominic Pacheco-Donelson and Jazmine Hunter, were driving a stolen car when they started to follow Scott, trailing him as he drove into his apartment complex’s parking lot, according to the First Judicial District Attorney's Office.
Porter and Hunter got out of the stolen car and approached Scott. They demanded his keys and phone while holding him at gunpoint.
Porter, who was about two feet away from Scott, shot him in the shoulder, according to the district attorney's office.
Porter, Pacheco-Donelson and Hunter were arrested afterward.
A jury found Porter guilty of first-degree assault and three counts of aggravated robbery during his August trial. He was also charged and convicted of two habitual criminal counts.
Hunter was sentenced to five years on probation after pleading guilty to robbery.
Pacheco-Donelson was sentenced to 24 years in prison on Nov. 5, 2018 for his role. He provided the gun and was on federal parole for gun trafficking at the time of the crime, according to the district attorney's office. He pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, possession of a weapon by a previous offender and one violent crime count. This was his sixth felony conviction.
