WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Palm Beach County man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a shooting and a crash that left three people dead.
The Palm Beach Post reports that 21-year-old Derrick Jupiter was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to lesser charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter.
He had been facing three counts of first-degree murder.
Jupiter was driving an SUV through suburban West Palm Beach in February 2018 as he and two passengers pursued a car driven by another man.
Investigators say Jupiter's passengers repeatedly fired at the other man's car.
That driver was killed. Jupiter attempted to flee and crashed into a tractor-trailer, killing his passengers.
