NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A jury has convicted a 27-year-old man in connection with a fatal shooting on N. Military Highway in Norfolk.
Authorities said Patrick M. Barnes was one of three men involved in the shooting death of Michael McGregor in March 2019, which police said they believed was gang-related.
After a three-day trial, the jury convicted Barnes Friday on charges of second-degree murder, abduction, and two counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. The jury recommended a sentence of 14 years in prison and a fine of $1,250.
Barnes’ formal sentencing, where a judge will decide whether to accept the jury’s recommendation on a sentence, is scheduled for March 5, 2021.
Drew was convicted of abduction, conspiracy, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was sentenced to five and a half years in prison.
Bryant was convicted on the same charges as Drew and given a seven-year sentence in March.
