Default (Black) Drug dealers get decades in prison for shooting bystander

Drug dealers get decades in prison for shooting bystander

The justice system showed some muscle Tuesday when a Manhattan federal judge sentenced two Bronx drug dealers to more than three decades in prison apiece for injuring an innocent bystander during a shootout.

Kevin “Lion” Sterling was sentenced to 37 years in prison, while cohort Alonzo “Zoe” Vernon, landed 35 years.

There is no parole in the federal prison system, so the two men — who are in their late 30s — will be ready for Social Security when they get out.

They were convicted In April after a three-week trial. They shot at a drug worker who owed them money — but hit instead a young woman who was outside with her friends.

The feds said Sterling, 28, and Vernon, 39, had followed the worker to his home in the Bronx in May 2015. Sterling called out to the man while he was hanging out on his porch with some friends, and shot the gun.

The bullet missed the worker and shattered the women’s elbow, entering her side, the feds said. She survived.

“When a drug worker refused to pay a drug debt, Kevin Sterling and Alonzo Vernon hunted him down and Sterling shot at him, without any regard for his life or the lives of the innocent people nearby,” said Acting Manhattan US Attorney Joon Kim.

The two men were also convicted of drug offenses, including conspiring to distribute and possess 100 grams or more of heroin and being felons in possession of ammunition.

In addition to their lengthy prison terms, they were sentenced to 10 years of supervised release each.
