WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 22-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to more than 25 years in prison for the shooting death of a 16-year-old boy in the summer of 2021. 

Sedgwick County District Judge Tyler Roush on Thursday sentenced Tyler Kelly to 25 years to life for first-degree murder, 43 months for aggravated burglary, and 13 months for aggravated assault, the district attorney's office said. He must serve 25 years plus 56 months before being considered for parole. 

The shooting happened on July 17, 2021 in the 2600 block of North Piatt Street. Officers arrived to find 16-year-old Joseph Florence with a gunshot wound. He died at a local hospital. 

Kelly and a 16-year-old suspect were injured during the incident and arrived at the hospital while police were investigating, police said. A jury convicted Kelly in July 2023. Information regarding the teen suspect has not been released. 

Police said the suspects and the victim knew each other and that the shooting was the result of an argument.
