Man Sentenced After Firing Gun Near Harding Stadium


The man who fired a gun at a Chicago man after a fight inside Walgreens in Steubenville has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Torre Carter was set to go to trial Thursday, but made the decision late Wednesday night to plead guilty to an amended deal, lowering his charges to aggravated assault from felonious assault.

Carter and the Chicago man, Jonathan Bray, cross passed in Walgreens and started to first fight, that’s when Bray hit Cater over the head with a gun so hard he dropped his. Carter picked the gun up and fired.

The incident happened across from Harding Stadium as the Steubenville Catholic Central football game was ending.

“What’s really, really disturbing about this, is what you would have heard at trial, is that, they do not know each other. They simply know that one is from Steubenville and one is from Chicago. And we are unfortunately in this position that, that’s all it takes. That on site, if these two sides see each other– it doesn’t matter if they’re in the street. It doesn’t matter if they’re in Walgreens. If they see each other, there’s going to be trouble,” said  Jefferson County Prosecutor, Jane Hanlin.

Bray has already pleaded guilty and been sentenced to six years, because of his criminal history.
