Massapequa Man Convicted of Murder

A second gunman was convicted Thursday of killing a 44-year-old man outside of the victim’s North Amityville home and wounding two others nearly five years ago.

A Suffolk County jury found Shawn Lawrence, of Massapequa, guilty of second-degree murder, attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Prosecutors said the shooter gunned down James Terry and wounded two other men during a confrontation in the Andpress Plaza housing complex parking lot on Jan. 12, 2010.

His codefendant, 27-year-old Alan McGhee of North Amityville, pleaded guilty last year to first-degree manslaughter and assault. McGhee was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Lawrence faces up to 75 years to life in prison when he is sentenced June 22 by Judge William Condon.
