Fargo man sentenced to 10 years in drug related shooting

MOORHEAD – The final defendant in the case of a former Minnesota State University Moorhead football player shot over an apparent drug deal gone bad has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison.

Tyshawn Darden, 20, Fargo, was sentenced in Clay County District Court to an additional 10 years and five months incarceration.

Darden has been in custody since March after he and two other men were accused in the March 6 shooting of former MSUM football player Anthony Sands.

Court documents filed against the three state that Darden and two other men went to Sands’ Moorhead home, where Sands was shot in the arm and stomach over money and drugs.

Darden pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree burglary and one count of first-degree assault, both felonies. A charge of aiding and abetting attempted murder, along with six others, was dropped in exchange for his plea.

Samuel “Philly” Bullock, Jr., 26, of Fargo, and Michael Crittenden, 24, of Moorhead, also pleaded guilty in the case.
