SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison on attempted murder and other related charges.

According to the Wicomico County state's attorney's office, 62-year-old Jeffrey Jones Sr. was sentenced by a county judge on Tuesday, after a jury found him guilty in July of second-degree attempted murder, use of a firearm in a crime of violence and possession with the intent to distribute cocaine.

The charges stemmed from an incident on Nov. 15, 2015, when Salisbury police responded to a report of shots fired in the 400 block of Patterson Avenue, according to prosecutors. Upon arrival, officers found a woman who had been shot in the shoulder. The state's attorney's office says Jones had taken off with the firearm, cocaine, marijuana and nearly $9,000.

Police caught up with Jones less than a block away and learned that the woman who was shot was his girlfriend, according to prosecutors.

Jones' 35-year sentence will be served in the Wicomico County Division of Corrections.
