Gunman, kidnapper sentenced

February 26, 2004

Americus-- A Sumter County man who shot a teen and held the boy's mother hostage will spend 25 years in prison.

In July, 37-year-old Keith Johnson broke into a home on Ridge Street, and shot 15-year-old Xavier Carter in the leg. He then held his former girlfriend Janie Carter Jackson hostage inside the home, beating her at times.

Johnson surrendered about six hours later. Johnson is not eligible for parole.
