Erie man sentenced to state prison in April shooting

In April of 2016, Ashton Pullium-Jones was involved in a shootout in downtown Erie, PA. He faced up to 17 years in state prison.

"Police said they recovered 44 shell casings at the crime scene, which spanned two square blocks. Ballistics testing matched 25 9 mm casings from the scene to a Glock 17, from which Pullium-Jones’ fingerprints were recovered, police said."

Attorney Leonard Ambrose "asked for a minimum sentence of three years or less.

Erie County District Attorney Jack Daneri pushed back, calling Pullium-Jones “a scourge” in the community.

Daneri said Pullium-Jones is a member of “one of the gangs that we know exist in this city,” Four Nation. Law enforcement officials have said previously that Four Nation is a gang associated with the east side of Erie.

Brabender sentenced Pullium-Jones to serve three to nine years in state prison, followed by 10 years of probation."

He will be out in three years with good behavior.
