SHREVEPORT, La.–Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that two felons have been sentenced in United States District Court for illegal possession of firearms.

Three-Time Convicted Felon Sentenced

Angelo Demario Young, 30, of Shreveport, was sentenced on a federal firearms charge by U.S. District Judge S. Maurice Hicks Jr. to
84months (7 years) in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, after being convicted of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. According to documents filed with the court on June 11, 2019, Angelo Young recorded himself shooting a Glock .357 pistol at a shooting range in Shreveport and posted it to Facebook.com.

possess a firearm. The ATF conducted the investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Leon H. Whitten prosecuted the case.
