Man gets 4 years in pri­son in fire­fighter’s fa­tal shoot­ing

The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

A Prince Ge­orge’s County man who fa­tally shot a fire­fighter he mis­took for an in­truder will spend four years in pri­son.

Dar­rell Lump­kin was sen­tenced Fri­day to four years in pri­son. Lump­kin fa­tally shot John Ulm­schnei­der on April 15, 2016.

Fire­fight­ers had been called to Lump­kin’s home in Tem­ple Hills to check on his wel­fare.

When he was un­re­spon­sive, they forced their way in.

Lump­kin then fired sev­eral rounds. A sec­ond fire­fighter, Kevin Swain, was in­jured in the shoot­ing along with Lump­kin’s brother, who was ac­com­pa­ny­ing fire­fight­ers.

A grand jury de­clined to re­turn an in­dict­ment for murder.

But Lump­kin was charged with il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of firearms be­cause he was in­el­i­gi­ble to own weapons as a re­sult of a pre­vi­ous con­vic­tion.

Lump­kin will re­port to pri­son in mid-May.
