Bangor police are investigating a brawl that erupted outside the Penobscot County courthouse after a man pleaded guilty to a fatal shooting.
Friends and family of 32-year-old Lawrence “Randy” Sinclair Jr. got into a fight Wednesday with friends of Michael Carter after Carter pleaded guilty to manslaughter in Sinclair’s March 2012 death. He was sentenced to 16 years.
WABI-TV reports that Sinclair’s family and friend said during sentencing that they’ll never forgive Carter for what some characterized as an execution-style shooting.
Police say Carter shot Sinclair in the head and injured two other men with gunshots outside Carter’s home in Lamoine. Officials say the shooting was precipitated by a dispute between Carter and one of the injured men over a paint job on Carter’s truck.
