Video obtained by 19 Action News shows how quickly things can turn deadly with tempers and guns.

At the heart of this case, the killing of Donald Coley. In a few days, Robert Mahone will be sentenced for it.

It happened earlier this year at East 55th Street and Woodland Avenue in Cleveland. The video shows one of Mahone's buddies had words with another man inside a store. Security stepped in and even followed all of the men out.

But at the gas pump, one man gave a shove to another guy. Mahone then pulled a gun and opened fire and hit Donald Coley, the wrong man. Coley had been there in the crowd, but he wasn't involved in the shoving.

Mahone had originally been charged with murder. However, he struck a plea deal to involuntary manslaughter and more. He still could be sentenced to up to 23 years.

Defense attorney John Luskin told 19 Action News that he and partner Kevein Cafferkey are hoping for the minimum.

Luskin argues the video shows Mahone didn't want to be involved and the instigators should have to face charges.

Still, Mahone was already on probation for a case of having a gun in a car.
