CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A man admitted Wednesday to his involvement in a shooting in downtown Charleston this summer.
Shaquille Dominique Burton, 20, pleaded guilty to two counts of wanton endangerment, assistant Kanawha County prosecutor Jennifer Gordon said.
In June, police said Burton and several others were involved in a shooting on Clendenin Street, between the Charleston Civic Center and the Charleston town Center.
Terrance Bonner, 18, of Charleston and a female companion were dropping off two other women at about 2 p.m. when several men walked up to Bonner's truck and opened fire. In all, five or six shots were fired, one of which hit Bonner in the forearm, police said.
Wanton endangerment carries a five-year maximum prison sentence, but Gordon said she would ask the judge for the sentences to run consecutively. Also, Gordon will ask Kanawha Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib to suspend the prison sentence and consider sending Burton to the Anthony Center for Youthful Offenders when the judge sentences him Dec. 4.
