A Milwaukee man was sentenced to two years probation Thursday, March 30, after shooting and injuring five people outside Rufus King High School.

Devon Jobe, 35, pleaded guilty and was convicted of four counts injury by negligent use of a weapon after firing shots during a basketball game at the high school in February of 2022. 

Five people were injured, his niece among them. 

According to the criminal complaint, about a dozen teenagers got into an altercation outside the school during the game, and Jobe’s niece called him to pick her up. Witnesses described hearing two to three gunshots before Jobe drove away in a black sedan. 

Police say he turned himself in days later. 

Court records show the conditions of Jobe’s probation include 40 hours of community service and no law violations rising to the level of probable cause.
