JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A convicted felon was sentenced to 50 years in a 2011 double shooting.
Ulrick Watson, 21, was sentenced to a minimum mandatory of 50 years in prison on Monday. He was convicted last month on one count of attempted second-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
According to police, in August 2011, Watson got into an argument with Jerome Jones and Ibri Bryant after Bryant made a hand gesture at Watson's sister. During the dispute, Watson shot a gun into the air. The other two men walked away from the area but Watson followed them. Two fights broke out, and Watson shot Jones and Bryant.
Watson is a four-time convicted felon.
