Moore told Salter to hand over his money and shot him because he was moving too slowly, according to the criminal complaint. After searching Salter for money, the men drove to McDonald’s.
A Hennepin County judge sentenced Davis to 345 months in prison, with credit for 662 days already served. The judge said Davis’ maturity – compared to Winston and Moore, who were 21 and 18 at the time of the shooting – struck her. The judge dropped the first-degree murder charge against Davis as part of his deal.MORE NEWS: Stray Bullets Hit Daycare, Multiple Homes In Brooklyn Park
