MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man got a 35-year prison sentence with no possibility of parole for the shooting and robbery of two men in separate 2013 incidents, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Monday.
Zaccheus Scott, 21, pleaded guilty to the crimes.
The first attack happened in June 2013 when he and two other men robbed a pizza deliveryman in southeast Memphis.
Corey Levy, 24, said the three men demanded he give them his cash and car keys. He did so, but one of the men still shot him. Levy was critically wounded.
The two other men allegedly involved, Demarcus Jones and Quindarius Reed, were also charged with the robbery and shooting.
In a separate case two weeks later, Scott and Jones struck again.
Police found Devin Champion, 19, suffering from gunshot wounds and left for dead. Champion identified his assailants, whom he knew. The two had also taken his wallet and $500.
Scott pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated robbery, especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated burglary, theft of property over $1,000, setting fire to personal property and two counts of employing a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
