BUFFALO, NY - Dontre Jones will spend the next 25 years in prison for killing a man in Cheektowaga Town Park.

Jones was sentenced by Judge Pietruszka Monday morning in Erie County Court.

Jones shot and killed Ira Watkins in May 2011.

Police say two gangs showed up to the park for a water balloon fight that was advertised on Facebook and Watkins wasn't in either of the gangs and was actually trying to break up the fight.
