2nd shooter in attack on ambulance gets 170 years


FORT WAYNE – A Fort Wayne man has been sentenced to 170 years for strafing an ambulance with bullets last September.

On Feb. 6, an Allen Superior Court jury convicted Dontay Martin of all the counts against him -- four counts of attempted murder, two counts of criminal recklessness and one count each of carrying a handgun without a license, criminal gang activity and battery with a deadly weapon causing injury.

Traneilous L. Jackson pleaded guilty in the same attack and was sentenced to 60 years.

Jackson testified in Martin's trial that Martin was firing out of the back passenger window, nearly emptying a 9 mm semiautomatic Glock 17 with a 30-round extended magazine during the early morning hours of Sept. 9.

More than 30 bullets tore through the ambulance windows and sliced through the car doors, hitting people inside both vehicles.
