HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court won’t allow a Lancaster man to appeal his conviction in the January 2015 killing of a young father of three.
Stefon Landing, 22, was convicted of third-degree murder and other charges and is serving 22½ to 45 years in prison for shooting 22-year-old Devonte Gantt in the 700 block of High Street.
Prosecutors said Landing shot Gantt during an argument. A third man, Amos Clay III, pulled a gun and returned fire, hitting Landing. Clay was shot in the leg.
Landing claimed he acted in self-defense in an earlier appeal to state Superior Court. That request for relief was denied in November.
