GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One of the men arrested in connection to a fatal shooting at a Grand Rapids barber shop has been sentenced to jail time.

David Runyon was sentenced Tuesday to 12 months in jail.

Runyon is one of two people arrested in connection to the death of Nathan Moore, who was shot in the chest on Dec. 21, 2014 during an after-hours party at a barber shop on Hall Street SE in Grand Rapids. The 28-year-old was taken to the hospital, where he died.

Also arrested in connection to Moore’s death was Darius Montes Key, 32, who faces more serious charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of firearms by a felon, and felony firearms.

Runyon pleaded guilty last month to lying to a police officer. As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors recommended the 1-year jail sentence.

No one has yet been charged with actually shooting Moore.
