ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man has been sentenced for a downtown St. Cloud shooting last year that injured a teenager.

Twenty-one-year-old Kevon Washington has been sentenced to three years in prison. He gets credit for having already served more than a year in jail.

Washington pleaded guilty to 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon - causing substantial bodily harm in May.

A St. Cloud police officer was patrolling the downtown area just before 1:00 a.m. on June 20, 2021, when the officer saw multiple fights in the H-Lot parking lot. That's when the officer saw a man raise his arm and fire gunshots toward the Centre Square Parking Ramp.

Court records show police investigators used video surveillance in the area to determine Washington was the shooter.
