A man involved in an Erie shootout that left one person dead will face up to 14 years behind bars.
In May, a jury found Grover Lyons guilty of voluntary manslaughter for fatally shooting Darrin Germany on New Year’s Eve of 2016. The crime happened outside of Bogey’s Tavern in Erie. Police say after the incident, the defendant fled town. Investigators later found him hiding in the crawl space of a house in Detroit.
The jury found Lyons guilty of several other charges including aggravated assault and fleeing to avoid punishment.
Today, a judge sentenced him to 7-14 years in prison.
