A Jeff Davis County man is sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter in connection with a service station shooting spree.
Jeffrey Gray pleaded guilty earlier this week to the September 2004 shooting death of Christopher Norwood. Authorities say Gray fired at least six shots at Norwood's car in the Spaceway Oil Company parking lot on Columbia Street in Prentiss.
Norwood was able to drive a few feet before running his car into an open field. Gray was ordered to serve at least 10 years in prison and pay 11,000 dollars in restitution.
