CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
One of the gang members involved in the deadly shooting of an innocent woman was sentenced to prison on Tuesday.
Daymond Haywood will spend the next 11-years in prison.
Haywood, and four other men, are members of the 95th Street Boys Gang. Multiple altercations with the 86th Street Quincy Boys Gang led to a shootout just before 1 a.m. on East 95th Street on March 14.
44-year-old Elissa Hereford looked out her second floor window and was shot during the exchange of gunfire. The Cleveland mother was rushed to Metro, where she later died.
Haywood's lawyers said he was dealt a bad hand, has disabilities and got bad advice from his mother to fake psychological issues to get out of full punishment. Haywood apologized in court, and claimed that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Judge Janet Burnside didn't buy it.
"Wait a minute, we don't permit people to come in here and say I was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Elissa Hereford was at the wrong place at the wrong time. You were firing a gun," Judge Burnside told Haywood.
Haywood's 11-year sentence is the longest of any of the others already in jail. His plotting with his mother on how to mislead mental health professionals was caught on jail phone recordings and certainly didn't help his case.
The other gang members - Devon Mittman, Brennon Isom and Ab Tipton - were each sentenced to 8 years in prison. On October 22, Jimeel Germany was sentenced to 6 years in prison.
