One of three people believed to be involved in an aggravated robbery that left the victim on the ground with a gunshot wound to his shoulder in Lakewood this April has been sentenced to 24 years behind bars, according to the First Judicial District Attorney's Office.
The DA said Dominic Pacheco-Donelson, 24, was in court on Monday after pleading guilty to aggravated robbery, possession of a weapon by a previous offender and one more violent crime count. His co-defendant, Damon Porter, has been charged with the attempted murder of the robbery victim in the case.
Porter has a motions hearing set for Nov. 9, the DA said.
Back on April 4, Lakewood police responded to a report of a gunshot wound and found a man there with a gunshot wound to his shoulder, according to the DA. The arrest affidavit says Pacheco-Donelson, Porter and Yazmine Hunter (also pictured) were in the stolen car while they followed the victim to an apartment parking lot.
Pacheco-Donelson was driving, police said. Hunter and Porter approached the man when he got out of his vehicle and Porter pointed a gun at him, according to law enforcement. They demanded the victim's things - taking his phone and demanding his keys. The victim didn't notice the gun Porter had and refused to give them his keys.
Police said that's when Porter shot the man in the chest from two feet away. After shooting him, the pair returned to the car Pacheco-Donelson was driving and sped off. Lakewood PD found Porter and Pacheco-Donelson two days later.
Hunter is still on the run.
This was Pacheco-Donelson's sixth felony conviction. He also provided the gun that Porter used to shoot the victim, the DA said.
If you see Hunter, call 911.
