Man sentenced for shooting another man in KrogerJanuary 27, 2021
By The Associated Press
FORT WAYNE — A judge has sentenced a man to 35 years in prison for shooting another man three times inside a Kroger supermarket in Fort Wayne.
Marr Brown, 33, learned his punishment Monday after a jury in November convicted him of attempted murder and criminal recklessness in the Dec. 19, 2018, shooting at a Kroger store on Fort Wayne's north side.
Brown had argued he shot James Walker, 48, because he thought Walker was going to kill him.
Allen Superior Court Judge David M. Zent also ordered Brown to pay $38,400 in restitution and to stay away from Walker, The Journal Gazette reported.
Brown told the jury Walker had threatened several times to kill him since the two met at a barbershop three years ago. Their feud apparently stemmed from a financial dispute that prosecutors tied to a drug deal. Brown claimed Walker owed money to some individuals he had introduced to Walker.
Brown said he always carried a gun and received his lifetime carry permit when he was 18, two years after he came to the U.S. from his native Jamaica.
