A gunman was sentenced Friday to 35 years in prison for shooting a 50-year-old Queens man to death in 2013 in the shooter’s hometown of Valley Stream.

Orlando Ortiz was convicted at Nassau County court in December of first-degree manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.

“This defendant shot an unarmed man multiple times as he sat in his car, unable to defend himself,” Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said.

Prosecutors said the 32-year-old man shot Richard Baccus of Rosedale in the parking lot of Ay! Caramba following an argument shortly before midnight on the night of Dec. 23, 2013.
