Kimani Washington was sentenced today for his part in the armed robbery that took place before four adults and a toddler were taken outside and shot to death, four of them fatally, on Sept. 28, 2010, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Washington's sentencing came after he pleaded guilty to charges of home invasion, armed robbery, armed carjacking, unlawful possession of a firearm, trafficking in a Class B substance, and possession of a Class D substance. The DA's office says Washington, who was facing two assault-and-battery charges at the time, left Woolson Street before the massacre.

Eddie Washington supplied the guns and the getaway car, then helped corral the four people who would wind up dead on Woolson Street, a prosecutor charged at his arraignment this morning.

Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney Edmond Zabin did not say whether Washington actually joined Dwayne Moore in spraying five victims - four of whom died - with gunfire. However, it may not matter, because Zabin laid out a case in which Washington could be charged with first-degree murder under the "joint venture" doctrine, which could hold him as guilty as if he had pulled the trigger.
