Man convicted of murder, attempted murder for Truck Park Bar shooting sentenced to nearly 37 years
The second of two men convicted for their roles during the deadly Truck Park Bar shooting on Oct. 10, 2021, in St. Paul was sentenced Tuesday morning.
Terry Lorenzo Brown, 35, was sentenced to nearly 37 years in prison (441 months) for his actions that night.
Brown was convicted by a jury one day after they received the case in June. He was found guilty of four counts of attempted second-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder, as well as one count of illegal gun possession.
The shooting killed 27-year-old Marquisha Wiley and left more than a dozen others injured.
As previously reported by 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS, the other person convicted — Devondre Trevon Phillips — was sentenced to nearly 29 years in prison earlier this summer for his role in the shooting.
Prosecutors previously said that Brown and Phillips had a shootout in the bar and showed “a complete disregard for everyone else inside the bar that night.” Brown’s attorney argued that Brown acted in self-defense after Phillips fired at him.
Multiple victim impact statements were read in court and Brown also offered a brief apology before the judge handed down his sentence, which is just under the maximum allowed by law — 40 years.
