StarMetro Toronto - - CANADA & WORLD -

FRESNO, CALIF.—A man who ran­domly shot at mo­torists in two cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia coun­ties over a two-month span was sen­tenced to 354 years to life in prison.

Jorge Gracia was sen­tenced Mon­day by a Fresno judge, the Fresno Bee re­ported.

A jury last month found Gracia guilty of shoot­ing ran­domly at cars along Hwy. 145 in Fresno and Madera coun­ties in six sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions.

“He was ter­ror­iz­ing our com­mu­nity,” pros­e­cu­tor Katherine Plante said of Gracia after his con­vic­tion.
