Zion man sentenced to life in prison

WAUKEGAN – A northern Illinois man has been sentenced to life in prison for a 2004 shooting that killed two North Chicago residents.

The (Waukegan) News-Sun reported that Zion resident March Brown was sentenced this week for the shooting deaths of Remorrian Gordon, 23, and Shabrina Gully, who was 22 when she was shot.

Gordon died at the scene after being shot four times. But Gully, who was shot in the face, survived. She was paralyzed and died almost five years later from pneumonia, which authorities say was caused by her injuries.

Brown, now 27, was 18 at the time of the shootings. He faced a mandatory life sentence for the first-degree murder charges. His lawyer tried to persuade a judge for leniency, and says he plans to appeal.
