Man from Springfield Pleads Guilty in Connection with 2018 Crime Spree

Court documents show a man from Springfield has pleaded guilty to six different charges against him for a 2018 crime spree that included the death of one man.

56-year-old David Bryant pleaded guilty to charges of assault, armed criminal action, sodomy and second-degree murder.

In September of 2018, officers responded to the 1800 block of East Cherry and found 29-year-old Ryan Boulanger suffering from a gunshot wound. Boulanger was rushed to a local hospital, but later died of his injuries.

Bryant also shot another man at the 1100 block of West Norton just 15 minutes after shooting Boulanger. That man was taken to the hospital and survived.

Officers then tracked Bryant to a home on West Tampa. Once at the scene, he opened fire on law enforcement before barricading himself inside.

After a long standoff, authorities were able to negotiate Bryant out of the home, who then rushed at officers before being arrested.
