Two men are being sentenced in the murder of a 2-year-old girl who was shot and killed in Detroit in May of 2016.

Cleveland and Antoine Smelley is happening now. 

Police say Cleveland opened fire on a car with seven people inside after an argument, striking 2-year-old Makanzee Oldham.

According to police, Antoine was at a home in the 16400 block of Fairmount when he poured juice over the head of a woman getting ready for prom. He then pulled out a gun and threatened her and her friends.

Then, according to police, Cleveland and Deonta Bennett drove to the house to meet with Antoine. A fight broke out involving several people, and Bennett allegedly gave a gun to Cleveland. That's when he opened fire on the car.

Bennett was sentenced to prison in January after pleading guilty.
