Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — One of the suspects involved in the 2020 Rye Day shootings on Syracuse’s West Side learned his fate Thursday morning.  

Devar Williams was sentenced to 15 years for a criminal possession of a weapon and 2-6 years for second degree manslaughter. The sentences will be served consecutively, meaning Williams will be in jail for the next 17 years before having a chance for release. 

Williams pled guilty to both of those charges and was spared of a murder conviction in 17-year-old Chariel Osorio’s death.
