LOWELL, Mass. — A Lowell man will serve about a decade behind bars after admitting he shot his cousin several times at a public park in the city.
The Sun reports (http://bit.ly/2e7IANg) 23-year-old David Delvalle was sentenced to serve 9 ½ to 10 ½ years in prison after pleading guilty to charges including armed assault with intent to murder following a one-day trial last week.
Police say Delvalle shot his cousin Victor Escotto three times at Eagle Park on June 23, 2015. The 21-year-old victim survived.
Escotto told officers that Delvalle approached him while he was playing basketball, gave him “a look” that he described as a stare-down and began firing.
Police say there had been some bad blood between the cousins for several months after Delvalle accused Escotto of breaking into his home.
