The man taken into custody for possessing a weapon by a convicted felon at the scene of a fatal shooting Jan. 1 — but never charged with the shooting — pleaded guilty to a lesser included offense and received a two-year and one-day sentence.

Douglas Lee Deck, 27, who has split time living in Florida and on Sandy Creek Rd., entered the plea Monday and, as part of the agreement, will serve the sentence at 30 percent. He is being credited for days served in jail since his arrest on Jan. 1. He also agreed to forfeit the weapon.

On that date, Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies and first responders were dispatched to 115 Sandy Creek Rd. on a report of a shooting and found Paul Jonathan Wing, 58, lying in the yard toward the rear of the residence. He had been shot.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and District Attorney’s Office joined in the investigation and seized a computer and surveillance images during execution of a search warrant. Deck, who was staying at the residence of his late father, told investigators he fired the shot in self-defense.

During the investigation, it was learned Deck had a felony drug conviction in Florida and was banned from owning a weapon. He was taken into custody at the scene and later charged with felon in possession of a weapon, a class C felony with sentence range of three to 15 years in prison.

Represented by Lara Dykes of the Public Defender’s Office, Deck entered his plea to a class F-E felony of felon in possession of a weapon and agreed to the sentence.
