Deadly School Shooting In Parkland COMPLETE COVERAGEPHOTOS

FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The family of a Hollywood man who was killed by a drunk driver packed a Ft. Lauderdale courtroom for his sentencing hearing.

They wanted justice for 23-year old Derek Arango.

The accident happened February 20th at Sheridan Street and N 72nd Avenue. Jason Marshall, 39, slammed into the rear of Arango’s car which was stopped at a red light. Arango was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital where he died.

Police said Marshall’s blood alcohol level was .16 or twice the legal limit.

During Thursday’s hearing he was sentenced to 25 years. Arango’s family wished it had been more.

“I would have like to see 30 years. So many of our young people, the best and brightest, are being killed by people like Mr. Marshall in there,” said Arango’s father James

Arango played outfield for Nova High and was part of their state championship season in 2005.
