GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A man charged with murder in a deadly shooting at a Grand Rapids strip mall may spend the rest of his life in prison.
Authorities say Lowery opened fire at a birthday party being held at a strip mall on 28th Street east of Kalamazoo Avenue. Boykin was among the nine people who were shot.
The judge sentenced Lowery to 28 to 90 years in prison for second-degree murder and 2 years on a felony firearm charge. The sentences will run consecutively, according to court administrators.
Lowery last month pleaded no contest to both charges the day his trial was slated to start. In return, prosecutors dropped five other counts against him.
