Vancouver teen sentenced in home invasion, shooting

Posted: Updated:

A Vancouver teenager was sentenced today for barging into a home and shooting two people.

Samuel Dunn, 15, will spend four to five years in jail. He will be released shortly after his 20th birthday if he makes progress while in custody. If not, he won't get out until he's 21.

Vancouver police arrested Dunn in February. He pleaded guilty to robbery, burglary and assault charges last month.

Investigators say Dunn entered a home near Northeast Falk Road and 38th Street where a small group of friends had gathered. The teen threw a duffel bag on the floor, fired off one shot and then walked outside, according to authorities.

Fearing there might be an explosive in the bag, the people in the house threw the bag outside. That's when Dunn turned around and fired several more shots into the home, hitting Cory Bloom once in the hip and once in the thigh.

Sarah Godfrey was also shot once in the leg.

In court today, Godfrey read a victim impact statement along with other people who were at the house that night.

They accused Dunn of not having any remorse, but he did stand up and apologize.

"I want to say I know what I did was wrong and I expect to go to jail for it. And I'm sorry for what I did and I hope to participate in the programs offered to me," Dunn said.
