SALISBURY, Md.- Prosecutors say a Salisbury man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for attempted murder and related charges in connection with a 2014 shooting that occurred outside a shopping center.

Wicomico County State's Attorney Matt Maciarello announced Monday that 20-year-old Brian Karl Jones was sentenced Friday to 20 years in the Maryland Department of Corrections facility for attempted second-degree murder and a consecutive sentence of five years for the use of a firearm while in the commission of a felony.  

Authorities said that on May 13, 2014, Jones shot a 20-year-old victim in the lower torso in the area of Wali Plaza on Parsons Road in Salisbury. Police said Jones left the shopping center after the shooting and ran toward the area of the Pemberton Manor apartments. The area was shut down for two hours while police searched for Jones. Nearby Pemberton Elementary School was placed on a cautionary lockdown during the search. The victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medial Center where he underwent surgery and survived.

During the investigation, police said they identified Jones as the suspect. Using a search warrant, police searched an apartment in building 1009 of Pemberton Manor Apartments where they said they recovered a handgun.

On Nov. 6, 2014, Jones was convicted of attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, illegal possession of a firearm, firearm use while in the commission of a felony and trespassing.
