JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man convicted in the murder of a 21-year-old in March 2009 was sentenced to mandatory life in prison.

Anthony Jevon Mincey, 38, a five-time convicted felon, was convicted of second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He was sentenced to 15 concurrent years on the weapon charge.

Mincey shot Devaughn Durham in the leg at the corner of Whitner and McConihe streets as Durham met with another person at the intersection.

Durham was taken to a hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Part of the shooting was captured on video surveillance from a convenience store at that same intersection.

When the victim began to walk away, Mincey shot him from across the street with an assault rifle before fleeing the scene.
