CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis County teenager has been sentenced to 49 years in prison for a drive-by shooting that mistakenly killed the twin brother of the intended target.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 19-year-old Justin Lewis of Ferguson was convicted last month of second-degree murder. He was sentenced Friday in the 2010 death of 18-year-old Dorione Thomas of Florissant.

Thomas was shot to death while parked with his girlfriend in Kinloch. Police say it was a case of mistaken identity because Thomas' identical twin was the one actually being targeted in a gang feud.

Lewis was the driver of the vehicle used in the shooting. The shooter, Kevin McDavis, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 2011 and is serving life in prison.

The all-clear has been given after a toy gun prompted a lock-down of a Granite City school this morning. Around 8:30, a school bus driver called police about a man carrying a gun through a field behind Worthen Elementary School. After an investigation by Granite City police, they determined the gun was fake and no real threat was present. Police say a parent was walking behind the school back to his house with the toy guns after he noticed his two children had brought them to school. The school district has been notified about the incident and they are contacting parents. No criminal charges were filed.

State Auditor Tom Schweich has released the audits of the Missouri House and the Missouri Senate today. Both bodies of government received a rating of "Good." However, the audit shows the House failed to issue proper documentation after the theft of three laptops and two printers worth about $5,000. The audit also shows the Senate solicited contributions from lobbyists to pay "various questionable costs" including retirement dinners and retirement gifts totaling about $8,500.
