62 years for 2009 D.C. murder

Washington Post Editors

A D.C. Superior Court judge on Wednesday sentenced a District man to 62 years in prison for the 2009 fatal shooting of one victim and maiming of another.

In June, a jury found Troy Renard Thomas, 20, guilty in the June 2009 fatal shooting of Ryan Randy Troutman, 28, in the 600 block of Quebec Place NW just before 10 p.m.

Court records show that Thomas and another shooter fired off at least 45 rounds from an assault rifle as residents in the area scattered.

Troutman was killed; another victim’s leg was severely injured. Witnesses were able to identify a vehicle that was later traced back to Thomas.

Judge Herbert B. Dixon Jr. sentenced Thomas to prison for premeditated, first-degree murder while armed, assault with intent to kill while armed and other charges.

Make in stay in there for 42 years so that he'll be 62 when he gets out. I have a feeling he'll be out a lot sooner.

And that my friends is why crime is down. Lock them up, and they don't commit new crimes.
