- John Marzulli

A PAROLEE convicted of robbing a 7-Eleven in Queens with a shotgun and leading cops on a high-speed chase before crashing into another grocery store was sentenced Monday to eight years and nine months in prison.

Lorenzo McAllister, who had two prior conviction­s for sticking up convenienc­e stores, had been released from state prison only six months before pulling the 7-Eleven heist on Northern Blvd. in Flushing on Sept. 16, 2014.

His crew made off with $304 in cash, lottery tickets and the 7-Eleven owner’s Coach purse before cops spotted their getaway car fleeing the scene. The chase reached speeds of up to 120 mph before the robbers plowed into a store in Fresh Meadows.

McAllister, 33, suffered a broken hip in the crackup.
