Three teenagers convicted last month in a shooting outside Thurgood Marshall High School were sentenced yesterday to prison terms ranging from 15 to 45 years.

Baltimore Circuit Judge John M. Glynn sentenced Sean Howard, 17, of the 1500 block of E. Fayette St. and Percy Johnson, 17, of the first block of Southeast Blvd. in Middle River - both of whom were convicted by a jury of first-degree assault and use of a handgun - to 45 years in prison.

Antonio Williamson, 16, of the 700 block of Mello Court in East Baltimore was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He was found guilty of two counts of second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

As Glynn handed down the sentences, relatives and friends of the defendants erupted. Some began wailing and throwing themselves into the hallway walls outside the courtroom.

The three were convicted Sept. 9 of shooting Lamar Taylor, who was 15 at the time, and his brother, Terrell Scott, then 19, in a courtyard last October as school let out for the day.

Taylor was shot in the hip, and his brother was shot in the leg.
