Chicago Man Gets 5 Years for Accidental Killing
A man has been sentenced to five years in prison for accidentally shooting David Kennedy to death last year in a Hyde Park apartment.
Paris D. Walker-Rush, 26, was sentenced to five years Wednesday by Judge Mary Margaret Brosnahan after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, according to Cook County court records.
Kennedy, 24, was found shot in the head in an apartment in the 5200 block of South Cornell about 9 p.m. Nov. 21, 2014, authorities said at the time.
Kennedy, of the 3700 block of South Wood Street, died at the scene. An autopsy confirmed he died from a gunshot wound to the head, and the death was ruled a homicide.
Walker-Rush was arrested without incident immediately after the shooting.
