A 24-year-old man was sentenced to life in prison for a 2016 murder, the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.

Kashmer Bailey was sentenced to 82 years to life in prison after being found guilty of shooting at several people, killing one victim in February of 2016.

At around 1:21 a.m., Bailey was walking in a Tulare neighborhood after an argument with his girlfriend. After pacing in an intersection for a bit, he walked up to two men standing in front of their home.

When the victims asked who he is, he pulled out a revolver and started shooting at them. One victim, a 24-year-old man, was struck in the head while the other victim, a 27-year-old man, escaped the shots.

Bailey fled and was chased by the surviving victim as well as another witness. Bailey was taken into custody by Tulare Police about an hour later, a block away from the crime scene.

Bailey was found guilty of one count of first-degree murder with the special allegation that he personally and intentionally discharged a firearm causing death, and one count of attempted murder.
