A Natomas man was sentenced to 72 years to life Friday for a fatal shooting at a local barbershop in 2014, officials said.

Sean Kelly, 20, was convicted for fatally shooting Romainia Tyson, and shooting another man, in April 2014 at a Natomas barbershop. Tyson and his friend were parked in front of the barbershop driveway located in residential garage, and began to walk toward Kelly.

After a verbal altercation, Kelly pulled out a gun and shot at both victims. Kelly fled the scene but was arrested the next day.

The jury confirmed that Kelly carried and used a personal firearm for both crimes.

Kelly was convicted by a jury in December 2015 of second-degree murder and attempted murder.
