WASHINGTON — A District of Columbia man has been sentenced to 36 years in prison in a triple-shooting that killed two Maryland men and wounded a third.

Prosecutors say 36-year-old Jimmie Fleming was sentenced Monday in D.C. Superior Court. Fleming pleaded guilty in September to two counts of voluntary manslaughter and aggravated assault.

Prosecutors say Fleming asked for a ride from three men on July 13 in northeast Washington. Once they were driving, prosecutors say Fleming pulled a gun and opened fire.

The driver — 20-year-old Derek Price of Montgomery Village, Maryland, and a passenger — 21-year-old Donchell Thomas of District Heights, Maryland — were both shot in the head and died. A front-seat passenger shot several times survived.

Fleming was arrested after the car crashed and he fled to a nearby home.
