Man sentenced to prison for 2011 murder attempt

A 23-year-old man has drawn a lengthy prison sentence as a result of a 2011 shooting in the Foothill Farms area.

A Sacramento County jury in May convicted Jacory Brown for the premeditated attempted murder of Nehemiah Johashen and Garvin Johashen as well as discharging a firearm at an occupied motor vehicle. He was sentenced today by Superior Court Judge Sharon Lueras to seven years plus 89 years to life in prison, according to a District Attorney's Office news release.

In November 2011, the Johashens and two other people went to the Carl's Jr. restaurant at Elkhorn and Andrea boulevards. There they encountered Brown, who was in a vehicle with two other people. As the Johashens' car left the parking lot and was getting on the freeway, the car Brown was riding in pursued them.

Once on the freeway, Brown's car pulled to the side the victims' car. Officials said Brown opened fire with a handgun, striking the victims and causing serious injury.
