The man who fired fatal gunshots at a wedding celebration in a Sioux Falls park has been sentenced to 38 years in prison.
Abraham Garnawu Darsaw earlier pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of 25-year-old Moses Cole, who was shot at Falls Park in August 2018. Another man also shot in an altercation at the park, 23-year-old Bwengbugal Matembera, survived his injuries.
Prosecutors say an argument broke out and Darsaw pulled out a gun and shot into a group of people. Police say the argument was part of an ongoing dispute.
Darsaw apologized to Cole’s family when given the chance to address the court Thursday.
