TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A man was sentenced to nearly 24 years in prison for a shooting death near a Topeka high school.

Twenty-one-year-old Austin Tabor of Topeka was sentenced Friday for the October 2010 death of 20-year-old Matthew C. Mitchell and the wounding of 17-year-old Treshawn Wynne near Topeka West High School.

Tabor pleaded no contest in September to second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and drug-related charges. Police say Tabor and others went to the school after it closed to buy marijuana.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/14TrQCq ) Mitchell and Tabor had been friends from elementary school through high school.
