Police alleged Miller and Reynolds went to Mollett’s home in the 200 block of North Florence Street in February to steal a gun they had sold to him, Springfield Police Division Lt. Jeff Meyer previously told the Springfield News-Sun.

Mollett told the men that his dad had the gun, a police report says, and a physical fight broke out between Miller and Mollett. Reynolds allegedly fired a shot, according to a police report. He reportedly admitted to firing the shot that hit the victim, according to court records, but said it was intended to be a warning shot.

Last month, Reynolds was sentenced to four years in prison. On Tuesday, Miller was sentenced to 14 years in prison for felonious assault and possession of cocaine.
