JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Keshon Brainard Williams, 39, was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison for second-degree attempted murder and aggravated assault.

Williams must serve a minimum of 20 years for those charges and a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

In February 2015, the three victims were together when Williams approached them with a gun. He began yelling and then pushed one of the victims. Williams fired the gun multiple times before fleeing on foot. None of the victims were hurt during the shooting. 

Williams has prior felony convictions for sale of cocaine and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
