MUSKEGON, Mich. — A 17-year-old who brought a loaded sawed-off shotgun to a Muskegon Heights High School has been sentenced to at least three years in prison.

Dayvon Davis was sentenced Friday morning after pleading guilty on January 19.

Davis, who turns 18 this month, will serve a mandatory two years for possessing a firearm while committing a felony, followed by sentences of one to 15 years for firearm possession by a felon, possession of a short-barreled shotgun and resisting and obstructing police. He was sentenced as a fourth-time habitual offender.

Davis went into the school just before noon Sept. 9 after he was let in by a current student who was waiting at the entrance to go home early. Davis wasn’t a student at the school.

Police say Davis dropped a backpack and ran when officers approached him. He was later found hiding under a vehicle.

    How sad to throw away your life at 17. Whish there was a better way, but there is really no way to change him, the path was set long ago. Hope some day we find a way, but some of these thugs are lost, never to be part of a safe world. As George Carlin said four square states with guards.
