Woman caught in gas station shooting in HD gets 10-20 years
DETROIT (WJBK) - The woman caught on high definition video shooting at a Project Greenlight gas station in Detroit has been sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison.
Shamicah Burton pleaded guilty to guilty to armed robbery charges and no contest to assault and weapons charges earlier this month. On Tuesday, a Wayne County Judge accepted the pleas and sentenced her to 10 to 20 years for assault with intent, two years for weapons, and two to five years on other charges.
Burton was caught on camera in a shooting in March at a Mobil gas station on Fenkell near Greenfield. The gas station is one of eight Project Greenlight staions in the city. Project Greenlight is a partnership between the Detroit Police Department and area business owners to crack down on violence and deter crime. The cameras at Project Greenlight locations livestream video directly to DPD headquarters and are monitored 24 hours a day.
The video (WATCH ABOVE) shows two cars in a parking lot, where there was a heated argument. The female went into the blue Dodge Charger and it appears she put a gun in her skirt.
Seconds later, she walked to the Grand Prix and fired multiple times, striking the driver more than once. Police said the injuries are not life threatening.
The driver in the Grand Prix moved his vehicle, knocking down one of the men from the blue Charger. At that point, one man from the Grand Prix was able to wrestle the gun away from the shooter, and both cars quickly left the scene.
The day after the footage was published, police arrested Burton.
