Md. man sentenced to 4 years after fatal shooting of firefighter, wounding another



Updated:Apr 14 2017 07:22PM EDT

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. - A Temple Hills man who shot two Prince George's County firefighters when they entered his home last year has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Darrell Lumpkin apologized in court Friday telling the judge he was very sorry. He claimed he was having a diabetic episode and thought someone was breaking into his home when he opened fire.



The courtroom was packed with firefighters and family members as the wife of John Ulmschneider, the firefighter killed in the incident, got up to tell the court how difficult her life has been like since losing her husband. Dawn Ulmschneider said John was her best friend and soul mate. The widow is raising their 22-month-old daughter and she said one day that Abigail will realize that her father will not be coming home.

Lumpkin shot and killed Ulmschneider and wounded volunteer firefighter Kevin Swain as well as his own brother, who was with the firefighters at the time. The firefighters had gone to the house after Lumpkin's brother called 911 to say his brother needed help. When no one answered, the firefighter forced entry into the home. And as they did, Lumpkin opened fire.

Lumpkin was not charged for the killing, but was charged with illegal possession of firearms.
