Hempstead Man Gets 25 to Life for Murder
A gunman was sentenced Tuesday to 25-years-to-life prison for shooting and killing a 20-year-old man outside the victim’s Hempstead home last year.
Diquan McClough had been convicted in October at Nassau County court of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Prosecutors said the 21-year-old fired six rounds from a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun at Quavis Ford in front of the victim’s apartment house on Terrace Avenue at 4:20 p.m. Dec. 8, 2012.
Ford was hit three times—twice in the back and once in the left leg. He died hours later.
McClough thought Ford had been involved in a previous shooting of McClough’s friend, authorities said.
U.S. Marshals apprehended McClough a month later in Augusta, Ga.
