A St. Paul man who fired a shot that grazed a state legislator's daughter was sentenced on Thursday to three years in prison.
Darnell A. Dunn, 21, admitted to firing at a group of people gathered on the steps outside the home of state Rep. Rena Moran, DFL-St. Paul, on May 10.
Her daughter, Diamonde Moran, 19, was struck in the left breast.
Police said at the time that Dunn was not targeting the legislator or her daughter.
Diamonde Moran identified Dunn as the shooter after several young men who were with her denied knowing who he was, the charges say. She knew Dunn from school, she said. Her brother told police that Dunn was a member of the Selby Siders street gang.
Dunn initially told police that he was at his aunt's house at the time of the shooting. But he pleaded guilty on June 25 to second-degree assault.
