Damone McFerren, 28, of Mishawaka, Indiana, was sentenced in U.S. District Court after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.
McFerren was sentenced to 102 months in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release.
According to court documents, in October 2022, following a verbal argument in a South Bend home, McFerren fired three gunshots at one of the persons inside the house.
Officers who responded to the scene were able to recover the firearm McFerren attempted to hide in a discarded tire in the alley he ran to after leaving the home.
At the time of the offense, McFerren was on federal supervised release for a felony drug conviction, and he had multiple prior felony convictions, any one of which banned him from possessing the firearm.
