DEARBORN — Two Ypsilanti men involved with a shooting outside the former Nar Bar Sept. 17 were sentenced Feb. 22 in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Allante Percy, 24, accepted a plea agreement, and Judge Catherine Heise sentenced him to 10 to 30 years in prison for two counts of assault with intent to murder and a mandatory two years for felony firearm. The sentences will run consecutively.

Mario Amison, 29, was found guilty of carrying a concealed weapon, felon in possession of a firearm and felony firearm second offense. He was sentenced to five years in prison for the first two charges and five years for the felony firearm. The sentences will run consecutively.

Police were called to the bar and saw a man shooting into a crowd of people. The shooter and another man fled in a vehicle, and officers pursued them, subsequently arresting both in the area of Michigan Avenue and Gulley after a brief foot chase.

Three shooting victims were transported to an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and later released.

“Crimes of this nature destroy people’s sense of safety and security and will not be tolerated in Dearborn,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said. “I am grateful that the victims have recovered from their injuries, as the outcome of this incident could have been much worse. I commend the responding officers and the investigators for a job well done.”
