DETROIT (AP) — A 19-year-old Detroit man has been sentenced to three life terms in prison with no chance of parole for gunning down two gay men and a transgender woman who authorities believe were targeted because of their sexual orientation.

Devon Kareem Robinson was sentenced Tuesday in the killings of 21-year-old Alunte Davis, and 20-year-olds Timothy Blancher and Paris Cameron in May 2019. Prosecutors have said Davis and Blancher were gay men and Cameron was a transgender woman.

Robinson is also accused of wounding two other people. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says her office will remain vigilant in the fight against hate.
