Man gets life for Detroit shooting spree

/ Source: The Associated Press

A man was sentenced Thursday to life in prison for killing two people and wounding three others in a shooting spree that began outside a day care that his daughter attended.

Contrelle Harbin, 26, was convicted last month of two counts of murder, three counts of assault and firearms charges. Life in prison without parole is the mandatory term on the murder counts.

Police initially thought the shootings were random. But Harbin’s lawyer confirmed Harbin had a daughter at the day care, and testimony showed that Harbin knew at least two of the victims.

The Nov. 16 shootings took place within 10 minutes in a three-to four-block area. No motive was given.
