A man suspected of shooting his ex-girlfriend in Pflugerville in 2019 has been sent to 15 years in prison.
The man, named Gregory Horton, had turned himself into the Georgia police soon after the incident and was arrested. The incident was reported two years ago after Horton’s ex-girlfriend was shot twice.
The victim had then informed the police that Horton sneaked into her backyard and shot through a window. Though he was not arrested that night itself, Horton decided to turn himself in later on.
Horton Sentenced for First-Degree Felony Aggravated Assault
A Kxan report quoting Horton’s attorney, Amber Vazquez, said that the accused was sentenced for first-degree felony aggravated assault. The court ruling would mean that Horton will serve full time in prison.
According to the attorney, Horton’s sentence was not what any party involved wanted, but “…the closest to justice we can get.”
The shooting happened in 2019
Vazquez has also been quoted saying that Horton had addressed his traumatic brain injuries and improved himself after the shooting.
Earlier in 2019, soon after the shooting incident happened, neighbors of the victim had told the police that they heard at least five to six shots fired. However, later the victim, who spoke to the Georgia police after Horton turned himself in, said she was shot twice.
