Teen sentenced for Cleveland drive-by shooting that injured two girls

CLEVELAND-- A teen who pleaded guilty in a drive-by shooting that injured two young girls was sentenced Thursday morning to 41 years in prison.

Three teens in a stolen car opened fire on Dudley Avenue in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood of Cleveland on Oct. 4, 2016. A 9-year-old was shot in the back and a 3-year-old was shot in the face.

Justin Jarmon, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, pleaded guilty to participating in a criminal gang, attempted murder and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

Savannah Davis' mother spoke in court about the trauma the young girl has endured. Now 4 years old, she is no longer walking and had surgery to put in a feeding tube.

"They need to be in prison for life," the mother told the judge.

Jarmon was also sentenced for robbing a 76-year-old man at the RTA station at West 150th Street. According to The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, Jarmon demanded money, grabbed the victim by the neck and threw him to the ground.

Jarmon is a member of the Detroit Taking Over gang with affiliates to the Heartless Felons. Prosecutors said the shooting was a result of violence between DTO and the Denison Boys.
