A Mansfield man involved in a shooting on Jan. 5 in the 700 block of Burns Street will be sentenced on Sept. 3.

Jarmel Sutton, 27, was supposed to be sentenced Monday in Richland County Common Pleas Court. His hearing was rescheduled.

Sutton pleaded guilty in July to felonious assault with a firearm specification, two counts of improperly discharging a firearm into a habitation and tampering with evidence.

The victim, Eric Downs II, was shot five times after a minor car accident with Sutton on Spayer Lane.

Sutton followed Downs to a residence on Burns Street. He later returned with Devonte and Delbert Evans. Downs answered the door and he was pistol-whipped and shot.

Sutton turned himself in to the Beachwood police on Jan. 21.

In June, Delbert Evans was found not guilty of all the charges against him. Devonte Evans trial is set for Sept. 15.
