The family of a man killed outside an under-21 dance party at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in 2010 is outraged the shooter won't serve time in prison.
David Brookins pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and was sentenced Friday to six years -- two years in prison and four years on home detention.
But because of time served, he will be released straight to home detention, RTV6's Derrik Thomas reported.
Brookins opened fire into a crowd of people outside the Ice Cold X-mas Jam party on Dec. 20, 2010, killing Dewayne "Shawn" Campbell, 20.
Deputy Prosecutor Anne Harrigan said a reckless homicide charge was the best option for a conviction.
"The sentence he is serving is the best sentence that was available under the circumstances," she said.
But Campbell's family is upset that Brookins won't be sent to prison.
"I'm angry. I'm upset. I'm hurt," said Rolnda Diaby, Campbell's mother. "You took my son at 20, you go do 20 (years)."
Brookins was also shot during the melee.
