Man Sentenced to Prison After Video Stunt Shooting Death

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- A man who pleaded guilty to shooting his friend in a video stunt involving a bulletproof vest has been sentenced to prison.
    
Mark Ramiro was sentenced to four years on Monday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder last year.
    
Prosecutors say Ramiro and his friends intended to shoot a "Jackass"-style video stunt in their Baltimore basement in 2014. His friend, Darnell Mitchell, strapped on a bulletproof vest and instructed Ramiro to shoot him in the chest. Ramiro aimed too high, however, and shot Mitchell in the upper chest. Mitchell later died.
    
Ramiro's attorney, Christopher Flohr, had argued that Ramiro should be spared jail and allowed to continue with a treatment program.
    
Ramiro's full sentence was nine years with five years suspended.
