A Baltimore jury convicted a 21-year-old man of attempted first-degree murder and other charges in the June shooting of an unlicensed taxi driver.
Baltimore Circuit Judge Charles G. Bernstein sentenced Adrian Outten on Friday to life in prison plus 55 years.
Court testimony revealed the victim picked up Outten on Park Heights Avenue and drove him to the 5100 block of Sekots Road. Outten left the car and told the victim he would be back. When he returned, he ordered the victim out at gunpoint, telling him to run. Outten then shot him in the legs and fled in the car. Police found the car eight days later. Outten was arrested the next week.
