Man gets nearly 70 years in fatal shooting

SEATTLE -- A man convicted of shooting four homeless people at a Seattle bus shelter two years ago, killing one with a shot to the head, attempted to storm out of the courtroom during his sentencing in King County Superior Court on Friday.
Nineteen-year-old Say Keodara had first apologized to the victims but maintained his innocence. Keodara then tried leave the courtroom, telling the guards they could "taze" him or shoot him.
The judge ordered him hauled back into the courtroom, and then handed down a sentence of more than 69 years. Last month a jury found Keodara guilty of first-degree murder, three counts of first-degree assault and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Keodara was 17 when prosecutors said he shot and killed 54-year-old Victor Parker in September 2011.
