GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) - Two New York City men are facing decades behind bars for the ambush shooting of a man about 15 minutes after his release from an upstate prison.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/1KAxbQh ) a judge on Monday sentenced Jerome Mack to 30 years in prison and Edgar Wilson to 20 years in prison in the shooting of Devon Simmons.

The two 36-year-olds from Manhattan drove to Otisville in a rental car on Oct. 9 to confront Simmons after his release from a state prison. Wilson picked up Simmons and Mack hid in the trunk. Mack got out and shot Simmons as he ran off.

Mack was convicted of attempted second-degree murder, assault and related charges. Wilson was convicted of assault, conspiracy and related offenses.

Both defendants plan to appeal.
