SALEM, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon man has been sentenced to 30 years and one month in prison for shooting a man in the face in a Walmart parking lot.
The Statesman Journal reports Jerry Borrego of Salem was sentenced Monday after a jury found him guilty of two counts of attempted aggravated murder, first-degree assault and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon.
The charges stemmed from an incident in June when James Goodman III was seriously wounded.
Witnesses say Borrego exited a Mercury Sable and fired several rounds into a Chevrolet Silverado in which Goodman was sitting before returning to the sedan and speeding off.
Witnesses identified Borrego as the shooter, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Borrego was arrested weeks later when he went to the emergency room after being shot in a separate incident.
