A Wichita man was sentenced to almost six years in prison Thursday for the shooting deaths of two men at a north Wichita intersection.
23-year-old Adam Ray was sentenced to 71 months for an October 22nd, 2015 shooting that happened at 53rd Street North and Meridian. Three men in a car were shot, and police said it involved a drug debt. Attorneys said that Ray was fearful of retaliation from a "J.T."
The "J.T." was identified as 31-year-old Justin Terrazas, who is now in jail for running over a Wichita police officer with a stolen car on February 7th near Topeka and Kinkaid. Officer Brian Arterburn remains in critical condition. Terrazas was not charged in connection with the 2015 shooting.
21-year-old Omar Garcia and 22-year-old Ernesto Aguilar -Retana were killed in the shooting, and a third man was critically injured. Ray was sentenced for two counts of voluntary manslaughter and one count of attempted voluntary manslaughter.
