100 Years for Endia Martin Shooting

By Nick Gale, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO)  The man found responsible for supplying the gun used to kill 14-year-old Endia Martin in a 2014 shooting has been sentenced to 100 years in prison.

Saying, “There are no excuses or rationalization for giving a child a gun to take to a ridiculous fight about a boy,” Judge Thaddeus Wilson sentenced Donnell Flora to 100 years Monday. Flora was found guilty of providing the gun that police say his niece used to shoot Martin after a fight on social media over a boy grew to a street brawl.

Flora, who was shot in 2009 and is paralyzed from the waist down, said in court that he was sorry for what happened and, “It never was supposed to go the way it went.”

He went on to tell the judge he wished he could trade places with Martin.

Flora’s niece is set to stand trial in May.
