SHARPTOWN, Md.- Three men have been convicted and sentenced in connection with a 2016 shootout at Cherry Beach Park in Sharptown, Md.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said that on July 24, 2016, Bryan Blake, 22,  Jeffrey Whitten, 18, and Logan Littleton, 21, went to Cherry Beach Park to purchase marijuana from Mitchell Dayton.
