Brandon E. Leverett, 23, was sentenced to 15 years in prison, followed by five years on probation, by Judge J. David Roper.

Leverett, Marcus D. Adams, 22, and Derrick Barbour, 23, were indicted together on two counts of aggravated assault and weapon charges in the Jan. 14, 2011, shooting of Thomas Dyson and Jayrin Williams. Charges against the other men are pending.

Leverett had two previous felony convictions for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
