MT. VERNON, IL (KFVS)- A Mount Vernon man will
spend the next 12 years in prison.
That's the sentence handed
down by a judge Friday in connection with a shooting that happened near Casey
Middle School in January 2012.
Prosecutors say in January 22-year-old Tylon Hawthorne fired several shots toward his brother. The
shooting took place just 250 feet from the middle school.
A jury convicted Hawthorne
following a three-day jury trial in May.
