A Florida man has been sentenced to death for fatally shooting his girlfriend’s ex-girlfriend during an argument.

The shooting happened in June of 2016, and Johnson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.
Johnson was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The shooting happened when Johnson was driving his SUV to his home in the 400 block of North Park Drive in Jupiter.
Johnson told police he was returning to the residence to pick up his girlfriend, who was a friend of his mother’s.
Johnson said he had gotten into an argument with her, and that she then allegedly threatened him with a knife.
He said he then pulled out his gun and shot her.
Johnson is scheduled to be sentenced for the murder charge in July.
