PLAQUEMINE, Louisiana — An Addis man convicted on two counts of attempted second-degree murder for firing into a crowd at a convenience store has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The Advocate reports ( ) 21-year-old Shannon Holmes Jr. will have to serve his time without the benefit of parole or probation.

Holmes was sentenced last week by state Judge William DuPont.

Holmes surrendered to police in June 2013 after he was accused of firing 12 shots into a crowd at the Circle K store in Plaquemine. Police say Holmes had gotten into several physical altercations that night while attending a high school graduation party.

Police say two people were injured after Holmes opened fire in a crowd of about 20 people loitering in the gas station's parking lot.
