A Lowell man was sentenced to prison Friday for attempted murder stemming from an incident that took place in March of 2015.
Jeremy Alicea, 27 of Lowell, was sentenced to between 8-9.5 years in prison after he was found guilty in August of armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a firearm, and other gun charges.
In March of 2015, the victim pulled into the parking lot of a gas station just after 6 a.m. Two men, known to Alicea, began arguing with the victim, at which point Alicea walked over to the car, concealing his weapon to take the victim by surprise.
He then fired directly into the victim’s car, narrowly missing him, then pointed the gun at the victim as he attempted to flee. Alicea’s gunshot was within striking distance of customers both inside and outside the gas station in the gas station, according to authorities.
