Man gets 6 years for fatal shooting
Tampa Bay area man gets 6 years in prison for fatal shooting after party
A Tampa Bay area man has been sentenced to six years in prison for a fatal shooting after a party.
As part of a deal with Pasco County prosecutors, 23-year-old Douglas Gabriel Cevallos Jr. pleaded guilty Wednesday to manslaughter.
Authorities say several teens were involved in a fight following a party in June 2009. At some point, Cevallos picked up a .40-caliber handgun that fell from the pocket of someone involved in the fight. He began waving the gun around and shot 17-year-old Dustin Sean White.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, investigators don't believe Cevallos intended to kill White.
