MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — A man who shot two people in Muskegon in 2017, wounding both of them, is headed to a state prison.

Jaraun Render, 24, was sentenced Thursday to between 12 and 65 years in prison on two counts of assault with intent to murder. He’ll serve an additional two years on a felony firearm conviction with credit for 427 days served.

A count of carrying a concealed weapon was dismissed Dec. 4 when Render pleaded no contest to the other charges.

Render shot Linda Jamerson, the mother of his children, and her boyfriend Dajuan Edison the parking lot of a Muskegon convenience store on Nov. 14, 2017. Both were injured but survived.

The day after the shooting, an Amber Alert was issued for Jamerson’s three children, who were in Render’s car when he shot their mother. They were soon found unharmed in Grand Rapids at their grandmother’s house.

Render was arrested in Grand Rapids two days after the shooting. Shortly thereafter, a source told 24 Hour News 8 Render had confessed to the shooting.
