BALTIMORE, Md. - A 23-year-old Baltimore man was sentenced Thursday to 50 years in prison, with all but 20 years suspended, for his role in an attempted murder last year that left a man paralyzed from the waist down.
Eugene Mickey, 23, was convicted by a Baltimore City Circuit Court jury on four counts, including murder consirpacy, in the April 13, 2012 shooting that was carried out with the help of two others. According to a Baltimore City State’s Attorney news release Mickey and two other suspects – Angelo Alexander, and Shaquille Johnson – approached the male victim in the 5000 block of Palmer Avenue.
Then, Johnson handed a gun to Mickey, who in turn passed it to Alexander and instructed him to "get" the victim, according to witnesses. Alexander fired multiple shots at the man, the release continues.
Alexander, 21, pled guilty to attempted first-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime. He was sentenced of 35 years in prison, 17 of those years suspended, and five years of supervised probation.
Johnson, 19, was found guilty of three counts, including conspiracy to commit first-degree assault. He was sentenced to 25 years, with 15 years suspended, and five years of supervised probation.
