SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The man who fired fatal gunshots at a wedding celebration in a Sioux Falls park has been sentenced to 38 years in prison. Abraham Garnawu Darsaw earlier pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of 25-year-old Moses Cole, who was shot at Falls Park in August 2018. Another man also shot in an altercation at the park, 23-year-old Bwengbugal Matembera, survived his injuries.
Prosecutors say an argument broke out and Darsaw pulled out a gun and shot into a group of people. Police say the argument was part of an ongoing dispute. The Argus Leader says Darsaw apologized to Cole’s family when given the chance to address the court Thursday.
