Man gets prison term for club shooting

A man accused of taking part in a shooting at a Gordon Highway club pleaded guilty Friday.

Rommie C. Williams, 27, was sentenced to five years in prison followed by 10 years of probation for his role in the Aug. 4 shooting at Club Pure Platinum in which one person was shot in the wrist.

Williams had been arrested three times on aggravated assault charges since 2007. The 2007 case was placed in inactive status, a February 2010 case was reduced to misdemeanor battery and a December 2011 case was reduced to terroristic threats.

Cases are still pending against Steven L. Williams, 28, and Yusuf K. Thompson, 26, both charged with aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime in the club shooting.
