ELYRIA — Tyvez McCullum was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison for his role in a home invasion last year that left an Elyria resident wounded.

The 23-year-old McCullum, who pleaded guilty to charges in the case last month, was charged along with three relatives in the incident in which 41-year-old Lonnie Williams was shot and stabbed.

Two other men were sentenced to prison for their roles as well. Terrell McCullum received 11 years in prison, while Terrence McCullum was sentenced to seven years in prison.

The three men, along with Jermaine McCullum, who is awaiting sentencing, are accused of being involved in a break-in at Williams’ Midway Crossings apartment Sept. 30, 2016, through an unlocked door. Williams was in the apartment with a woman and three girls, and fought with the robbers, Elyria police have said.

Police also have said that Williams was shot in his left forearm and right shoulder blade by Terrell McCullum and stabbed in the abdomen by Terrence McCullum.

After Williams was wounded, the robbers took money from a purse and fled.
