DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 26-year-old supporter of former President Donald Trump has been sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for shooting into a car carrying Black girls after an Iowa Trump rally, injuring a teenager.
Michael McKinney, of St. Charles, was sentenced Monday for the Dec. 6 shooting after a rally in Des Moines.
Authorities say the girl was in a car carrying teenagers who were exchanging insults with rally supporters, who were mostly white.
McKinney fired into the teenagers’ car after it backed up and struck a pickup truck belonging to a rally supporter.
McKinney pleaded guilty in June to intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury.
