CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — A northwestern Indiana man has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for killing a man outside a Gary nightclub and shooting at a police officer at the scene. A Lake County judge ordered the prison sentence on Friday for 32-year-old Fredrick Craft Jr. of Hammond. A jury convicted Craft in April on murder and attempted murder charges for the September shooting, during which prosecutors said Craft fired more than 80 gunshots into a crowded parking lot while wearing a bulletproof vest. Kevin Blackmon, 28, of Gary died in the shooting. Prosecutors said a Gary officer shot Craft in the leg. The officer wasn’t injured.
