Three Duluth men involved in an October 2020 shooting incident outside Lady Vi’s that left one person wounded have been sentenced to prison.
Keyon Lavell Iron Dunn, 23, pleaded guilty June 3 in Douglas County Circuit Court to one felony count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. He was sentenced on Monday, Oct. 18, to four years in state prison and four years of extended supervision. Dunn was also ordered to pay $7,777.84 restitution and have no contact with the victim. A count of first-degree reckless injury-use of a dangerous weapon, was dismissed but read in for sentencing.
JaVontae Laquel Harkins, 26, pleaded no contest Aug. 30 to felony counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety and being an out-of-state felon in possession of a firearm. He was sentenced Friday, Oct. 15, to four years in state prison and five years of extended supervision concurrent.
Randy Coleman, 23, pleaded no contest on Monday, Oct. 18, to an amended count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. He was sentenced to one year in prison and four years of extended supervision.
The three men fired guns along Tower Avenue outside Lady Vi’s around 2 a.m. Oct. 25, 2020. One victim was struck in the leg with a bullet that could not be safely removed and will remain permanently embedded, according to the criminal complaints.
Dunn was seen on surveillance camera footage removing a pistol from his sweatshirt pocket and firing at least one leveled shot, possibly at a specific person, the criminal complaint said. Coleman, who was standing in an alcove next to Lady Vi’s, was then seen firing a handgun into the air, the criminal complaint said. Both men fled the scene.
The surveillance footage showed Harkins running across the intersection after Dunn fired his gun. He turned and appeared to fire a shot in the direction of people at Lady Vi’s, according to the criminal complaint. A flash was seen coming from Harkins’ right hand at the same spot in the street where Superior police located a shell casing. He then got on a party bus and left the scene.
