7 more months of jail for Moorhead man charged in shooting

MOORHEAD – One of the three men charged in what police say was a drug deal gone wrong was sentenced Tuesday to seven additional months in jail after pleading guilty in the case.

Michael Crittenden, 24, of Moorhead, was sentenced in Clay County District Court to one year and one day in prison with credit for 146 days served on one count of fifth-degree felony conspiracy to sell drugs.

Other charges against him were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea, including a charge of aiding and abetting attempted murder.

Tyshawn Darden, 20, of Fargo, and Samuel “Philly” Bullock Jr., 25, of Moor-head, were also charged in the March 6 shooting of former Minnesota State University Moorhead football player Anthony Sands.

Court documents filed against the three alleged that Crittenden told police he and Bullock went to Sands’ Moorhead home, where Bullock shot Sands in the stomach with a rifle after saying he was going to take Sands’ cash and drugs.
