KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knoxville woman was sentenced to 25 years in prison after being convicted of second degree murder in a deadly 2012 night club shooting.

Shasta Jackson was convicted in July on two counts of second degree murder, two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of attempted second degree murder in the death of Esley Clemmons.

She was arrested back in September 2012 for a shooting at Rock's Grand Lounge on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

Jackson was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison on the second degree murder counts. She was also sentenced to 12 years for attempted second degree murder and six years for using a firearm during a dangerous felony. Those sentences will run concurrently.
