DECATUR — Two Decatur men involved in the multiple wounding of a shooting victim were sentenced to prison terms Tuesday in Macon County Circuit Court.

Jerrin J. Milan, 24, was given a six-year sentence and Javaris J. Milan, 25, was sentenced to three and a half years in prison.

Both men had earlier pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of weapons by felons in the July 8 shooting of a 27-year-old man outside a gas station in the 2100 block of East Wood Street. The victim survived with two bullet wounds to his left knee cap.

A third defendant, Devoe Randall, 26, had been convicted by a jury in February of aggravated battery with a firearm, being an armed habitual criminal and aggravated discharge of a firearm. The jury had hung on a charge of attempted first-degree murder and prosecutors have not yet announced whether they will seek a retrial.

Randall is due to be sentenced Wednesday, May 30, on the three convictions.
