FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A man was sentenced to 23 years in prison on Thursday for his role in a fatal shooting last year.
Police said Jose J. Lopez, 24, of Fort Wayne, shot and killed Antonio Galvan III, 28, of Fort Wayne, in the 3000-block of McDonald Drive on February 23. Augustus S. Marshall, 28, of Fort Wayne, was also charged with Galvan’s murder.
According to police, officers attempted to perform a routine traffic stop on Lopez and Marshall following the shooting, but they would not pull over. The two then led police on a pursuit that ended on Brown Street when the suspects’ SUV crashed into another car.
Lopez and Marshall then fled on foot and broke into a neighboring home on the block.
Marshall will be sentenced on Monday.
