Md. man sentenced after shooting 2 firefighters, killing 1

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. – In April 2016, Morningside firefighters forced their way into a Temple Hills home on an emergency medical call when the homeowner, Darrell Lumpkin, opened fire.

Nineteen-year-old volunteer firefighter Kevin Swain was critically injured, and has since recovered. His partner, 37-year-old John Ulmschneider of Califonia, Maryland, was killed.

On Friday, Lumpkin was given a 15-year sentence, with all but four suspended. He was only facing jail time for the gun he used, not for the life he took.

The sentencing was moved to a larger court room in Prince George’s County Circuit court because of the many friends, family and firefighters who showed up to support the fallen firefighter and his wife, Dawn.

I don't give a damn if you are the pope himself, you break into my home and I don't know who you are, and you come in unannounced, you will be shot at... It is just that simple...
