St. Breux

Fisthnise St. Breux, 19, had faced up to 30 years after pleading guilty to manslaughter last month. She will be deported to her native Haiti upon completion of her sentence.

St. Breux was arrested after Emanuel Porter II, 21, was shot in the parking lot of an Arlington gas station. Witnesses said Porter got out of the car, took the magazine out of his .40-caliber gun and put both on the front seat.

Witnesses told police St. Breux, a passenger in the car, picked up the gun, apparently not realizing a bullet was still in the chamber. She pointed it at Porter and declared, “I ain’t gonna shoot you.” Then it went off.

St. Breux told police she remembered the gun firing but didn’t recall pulling the trigger. She threw the gun in some nearby bushes afterward.
