Brownsville man sentenced in bar shooting

Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, 6:12 p.m.
 

A Brownsville man was sentenced Monday to serve four to 10 years in prison for firing a gun into a bar, striking two people.

Damion Ethridge in July pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure and carrying a firearm without a license.

Ethridge, 35, declined comment before he was sentenced.

During his July plea hearing, he apologized to one of the victims, Cassandra Ross of Brownsville.

A co-defendant, Paris William Brown, 36, pleaded guilty in April to discharge of a firearm into an occupied structure and reckless endangerment. Senior Judge Gerald Solomon on Aug. 1 sentenced him to 1 12 to three years in prison.

Police said Brown was thrown out of Jilly's Restaurant and Tavern in Luzerne after a fight on Dec. 22, 2012. He and Ethridge, who was waiting outside, both pulled semi-automatic handguns, police said.

Ethridge fired shots through the front door of the bar after Brown was thrown out, and Brown entered the bar and fired shots from his gun, according to the release.

Ross and Garrett Grooms of Cardale were struck by bullets. Both were taken to hospitals for treatment.
