The shooting took place in broad daylight during a school day, near the Daniel Webster Middle School. Johnson pleaded guilty to aggravated discharge of a firearm, with an enhancement of the shooting taking place within 1-thousand-feet of a school. The 28-year-old was hit with a 10-year prison sentence, though he was given credit for time already served.
