A man was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years to life in prison for fatally shooting 34-year-old man near a church in Uniondale where parishioners were gathered for Sunday services.

Nassau County Judge George Peck had found Jonathan Mack guilty in August of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Prosecutors said the 20-year-old Uniondale man gunned down Isaac Andrews, also of Uniondale, after the victim intervened in an argument Mack was having with a woman on Hill Street on June 30, 2013.

Four shots that Mack fired all hit Andrews, who died shortly later at Nassau University Medical Center.

Police apprehended Mack in Florida a month later.
