Jul. 11, 2018
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for chasing another man down and killing him after a fight.
A Lee County State Attorney's Office news release says 24-year-old Davontae Dashwon Harris was sentenced this week. He was convicted in May of second-degree murder.
Authorities say Harris and 25-year-old Willie Moore Jr. got into a fight at a Fort Myers hotel in August 2016. Harris ran away and grabbed a gun from his backpack. Authorities say Harris then chased Moore out of the hotel and shot him behind a nearby gas station.
Investigators say Harris dropped his cellphone near Moore's body. He was arrested two days later.
