FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The man found guilty of the shooting death of 15-year-old Eric McDonnell was sentenced to 80 years Friday.

Cameron Blake Hallett was found guilty of McDonnell’s murder in April.

Court documents say Hallett ambushed McDonnell in an alley near Euclid Avenue and shot and beat him in February of 2020. Investigators say it was all caught on camera. McDonnell named his killer when two witnesses ran to the scene, saying “Blako shot me”. McDonnell was taken to a local hospital where he died.

Police arrested Hallett shortly after.
