PONTIAC, Mich. - Two men have been sentenced in the deadly shooting attack on a crowded party bus in Pontiac.

Craig Lewis, 23, of Taylor, was found guilty of second-degree murder for the May 13, 2012 attack outside Porky's Bikini Bar in Pontiac that left two people dead. 

On Thursday, he received a sentence of 40-80 years in prison for second-degree murder charges, 2-10 years for larceny of a firearm and felon in possession of a firearm, and 5 years for a felony firearms charge.

Lewis and 21-year-old Lerrick Myers got in a fight and were kicked out of the bar. The men tried to rob the manager as the bar closed, then opened fire on the bus.

The gunfire killed two Detroit residents, 28-year-old Anthony Ellis and 19-year-old Shuntrice Sylvester.

Myers pleaded guilty to second-degree murder as the trial started.  He was sentenced 25-70 years in prison for second-degree murder charges and two years for a felony firearms charge.
