FAIRFIELD — A 19-year-old Suisun City man who was the gunman in a November 2011 fatal drive-by shooting was sentenced Wednesday to 17 years in prison.
Aaron J. Bragg opened fire from a car traveling on Canvasback Drive in Suisun City, killing James Taylor, 20, and wounding 21-year-old Derico Hughes.
Bragg, who was 18 at the time of the shooting, pleaded no contest in January to a voluntary manslaughter charge.
The shooting occurred after Bragg and Hughes had encountered each other briefly at a nearby gas station and exchanged “hard looks” and “mean mugs,” according to police testimony at a probable cause hearing.
