6 years in prison for man who shot 2 people, stabbed another


A 23-year-old Minneapolis man who admitted to shooting and injuring two people at a bar, and stabbing another person at a gas station in a separate incident, was sentenced to six years in prison, the Hennepin County Attorney's Office announced.

Devon Strouss pleaded guilty to charges against him in both incidents.

The first came Oct. 15, when he was asked to leave Bar 19 in Loring Park. It led to a physical altercation, and Strouss pulled out a gun and fired shots into the bar, the attorney's office says.

Two people were injured.

The attorney's office says local residents and business owners submitted impact statements, talking about how the shooting affected the community.

The second, unrelated incident happened Jan. 1. The attorney's office says he was trying to buy marijuana outside a St. Louis Park gas station. But when the dealer showed the drugs, Strouss grabbed them and attempted to run away. It led to a fight, and Strouss stabbed the man twice, according to the charges.

Strouss was sentenced to 36 months for the shooting, and 45 months for the stabbing.
