A Richmond man was sentenced this morning to eight years in prison for his role in a shooting at an after-school track meet at Pinole Valley High School 2010. D’Nedric Dwayne Kelly, 20, was sentenced in Contra Costa County Superior Court on one felony charge of assault with a firearm, according to deputy District Attorney Satish Jallepalli.
He recently pleaded no contest to the charge in exchange for the eight-year sentence, the attorney said. Kelly originally pleaded not guilty to five felony charges, including possession of a loaded gun on school property and attempted murder.Prosecutors said that a fight broke out at the high school campus the afternoon of April 14, 2010 and Kelly fired multiple shots, striking a teen boy in the hand.
The victim now has only partial use of his hand, according to law enforcement officers who testified during Kelly’s preliminary hearing in December. Just after the shooting, witnesses say they saw Kelly and another teen boy running away from the high school track. Police found him a short time later with a loaded gun at the Original Red Onion Restaurant located just north of the school and arrested him. Police officers testified during the preliminary hearing that Kelly appears to be a Richmond gang member.
