LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia — A man has been sentenced in the 2014 shooting death of a metro Atlanta taxi driver.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1JVelVZ ) that 18-year-old Cameron Hollins has been sentenced to 25 years in the death of 36-year-old Afolabi Odifa.
Authorities have said Odifa picked up Hollins and his alleged accomplice in Lawrenceville and was shot during a robbery.
Tracie Cason of the Gwinnett County District Attorney's office says Hollins was convicted of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Cason says Hollins was found not guilty of murder and a jury deadlocked on a felony murder charge against him.
Police have said Hollins told investigators that his accused accomplice shot Odifa. Cason says the second suspect has not yet gone to trial.
