A Binghamton man will serve ten years in prison for a drive-by shooting on the West Side in May.

30 year old Jeffrey Sanchez-Pica pleaded guilty to felony attempted murder and was sentenced March 29.

He fired five to six shots at a group of people outside of a home on Murray Street in retaliation for an argument at a barbershop.

His brother, Miquel Erazo-Pica was driving the vehicle at the time and had been sentenced to one year in the Broome County Jail after pleading guilty to reckless endangerment.

The shots were fired in the afternoon as many people, including children were on a porch.  No one was injured.

Had Jeffrey Sanchez-Pica been convicted in a jury trial, he could have been sentenced to up to 25 years in prison.  The ten year sentence is linked to his designation as a second-time violent felony offender and will be followed by five years post-release supervision.
