Salisbury Man Sentenced For 2015 Attempted Murder

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man has been sentenced following an attempted murder conviction for a 2015 shooting.

On Thursday, a circuit court judge sentenced 22-year-old Douglas Schoolfield to 20 years in the Division of Corrections. A jury found him guilty of attempted murder, possession of a rifle by a prohibited person and nine other charges back on Sept. 13.

The charges stemmed from a shooting across the Parsons Cemetery on Dec. 20, 2015. Police said Schoolfield fired multiple shots from an AR-style .22 in the direction of the victim, hitting him once in the upper body. Schoolfield was arrested at his home a few hours later, very close to the gun.

According to state prosecutors, Schoolfield was on probation when the shooting occurred, and his probation was revoked following his conviction. He was sentenced to an additional four years in the Division of Corrections for violation of probation.
