Drug deal shooting victim sentenced to 3 years for lying to police, drugs

A man connected to a botched drug deal in March that left a teen dead was sentenced to three years in prison Monday for his part in the crime, the last person in the deal to be sentenced.

Michael McAfee, 22, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice, burglary and drug charges after police say he and Brandon Davis, 17, tried to rip off a drug dealer outside Clover. Davis was shot and killed during the incident. McAfee was shot in the leg but still hid the stolen marijuana before trying to get help for Davis, authorities said. Afterward, McAfee lied to police about the incident before several others who were at the drug house confessed.

In previous months, the man who shot Davis and McAfee was sentenced to 16 years in prison and the drug dealer received 10 years. Others connected to the drug dealing and robbery also have been sentenced to prison terms.
