A man who shot three people in an incident on Stanton Street three years ago has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison.
In May, a Manhattan jury found Mario Rodriguez guilty of attempted murder in the second degree and other charges. Prosecutors said he he opened fire October 26, 2010 following an argument with a man outside 195 Stanton St. The victim has hit in the torso and gunshots also struck two bystanders. All of the victims survived.
District Attorney Cy Vance released a statement yesterday announcing the sentencing. Rodriguez faces 22 years in state prison, plus 5 years of “post-release supervision.”
He is 25 years old.
