Jerome Robinson, 26, of Flushing was sentenced to 22 years behind bars for his role in a 2011 July 4 weekend shooting that killed a woman and injured her son.
According to Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown, Robinson and an accomplice (Malik Wallace) approached the two victims outside their vehicle, which was parked outside the Pomonok Houses. The two then fired into the car, according to the complaint, killing the woman and injuring her teenage son.
Wallace was sentence to 23-and-a-half years in prison after being convicted of first-degree manslaughter on Sept. 11, 2015.
“This was a senseless slaying of a woman and the brutal assault of her son. It is yet another example of how illegal firearms can devastate families and communities,” said Brown in a statement. “The defendant has now been sentenced to a lengthy term behind bars that will protect the public and punish him for this brazen crime.”
