    Paul Davis was sentenced to 100 years in prison for his role in the shooting death of 15-year-old Kerry Foster in 2006.

    A Hartford man was sentenced to 100 years in prison Thursday for the shooting death of a 15-year-old.

    Paul Davis is one of two suspects in the shooting death of Kerry Foster on May 28, 2006.

    Foster and a 14-year-old friend were standing on Clark Street when a car pulled up alongside them and shots were fired.  Foster was killed.  The 14-year-old was wounded, but survived. 

    An investigation by the Hartford Major Crimes Unit and the Cold Case Unit in the Office of the Chief State's Attorney led to the arrest of Davis in 2009.

    Davis, who was 21 years old at the time of the shooting, was convicted in March of accessory to murder, conspiracy to commit murder and criminal attempt to commit murder.

    Charges against the second suspect in the shooting, Ackeem Riley, are still pending.
