Pittsburgh man gets 10 to 20 years in prison for 2013 shooting of 92-year-old jitney driver


PITTSBURGH — A western Pennsylvania man convicted of attempted homicide in the shooting of a 92-year-old jitney driver was sentenced to serve between 10 and 20 years in prison for the crime.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1MNzjED ) 26-year-old Jason Haddock was sentenced in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court on Monday.

Prosecutors say Haddock was aiming for the front-seat passenger of the jitney when he opened fire on the car near Pittsburgh's Bennett Street and North Murtland Avenue in September 2013.

The now-94-year-old driver has since recovered after he was struck in the neck and torso.

Haddock was found guilty of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, three counts of recklessly endangering another person and a gun charge in September.
