Sandusky man gets 23 years for attempted murder

Last week, after an Erie County jury found Demetrius Keahey guilty of attempted murder and felonious assault, a judge sentenced him to 23 years in prison.   

Keahey now sits in the Erie County jail, awaiting transfer to a state prison.

It won’t be his first trip — he has served prior stints on drug charges.

Sandusky police arrested Keahey last year, following a June 20, 2011, shooting in the East Oldgate Road neighborhood.

He opened fire in broad daylight on 30-year-old Prince Hampton, shooting him once in the elbow and once in the leg.
