AURORA, Colo. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a drive-by shooting in Aurora has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Aurora Sentinel reports (https://goo.gl/DA83vD ) 47-year-old Emanuel Lee Abrams was sentenced Aug. 3 for the March 2015 death of 46-year-old Lupe Salas.

Police who went to the scene found Salas with multiple gunshot wounds, as well as .22-caliber shell casings in a nearby gutter. A witness told police Salas and Abrams, who lived in a nearby motel, had argued earlier in the day.

Another witness said a man matching Abrams’ description shot Salas.

Abrams was initially charged with first-degree murder but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge in July.
