EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The man accused of an Evansville drive-thru shooting has been sentenced.

Officials with the prosecutor’s office say 27-year-old Jerome Height pled guilty to last year’s McDonald’s shooting.

He’s sentenced to 20 years on an attempted murder charge.

Charges for criminal recklessness and for a felon carrying a handgun have been dismissed.

Authorities found a victim lying in the parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds on Washington Avenue.

Officials say surveillance footage showed the victim was in the drive-thru paying for food when he was hit by gunfire.
