WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A 25-year-old Westchester man has been sentenced to time in state prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder following a near fatal shooting in the city.

Marc Seward of Mount Vernon has been sentenced to six years in prison after pleading guilty to the violent felony earlier this year for his involvement in the 2015 shooting, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. announced on Thursday.

Seward’s victim was walking on South Fulton Avenue in Mount Vernon at approximately 2:50 a.m. on Aug. 9, 2015, when he was shot numerous times, Scarpino said. Mount Vernon police officers who were on patrol at the time of the shooting heard the gunshots in the area and were later notified by a local hospital that Seward’s victim had been brought in for treatment.

Scarpino said that it was determined Seward’s victim was shot seven times. Using surveillance video from a nearby business, police were able to track down the suspect and he was arrested on the attempted murder charge. The shooting victim survived his injuries.

Following sentencing, Seward was remanded into the custody of the New York State Department of Corrections.
