ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A Rochester man was sentenced to spend at least 50 years, and up to life in prison, for the Easter 2020 shooting that left one dead and two others injured.

Dvontea Alexander, 29, was convicted of second degree murder, two counts of second degree attempted murder, first degree and second assault and two counts of second degree criminal possession of a weapon for what Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley called "a nightmare for this community".

Alexander killed 24-year-old Justin McMillian. One of the other two victims sustained serious injuries. The shooting happened on Clifford Avenue near Portland Avenue.

Prosecutors say the New York State Division of Parole helped the Rochester Police Department with the investigation.
