The other two suspects, Grmyko Chenault and Alexssandra Chenault, pleaded guilty to their charges in November.

Police said the shooting stemmed from an argument between vehicles in the apartment parking lot. The Chenaults were in one vehicle, and English and the victim, Temetrius Stewart, were in another. Police said Grmyko Chenault pulled a gun and started firing, wounding Stewart in the process.

English and Stewart drove away from the scene, but crashed on Lexington Avenue. Witnesses said they saw English take a gun from the vehicle and hide it. Officers later recovered the weapon.

Grmyko Chenault, 27, was sentenced to five years for second-degree assault and one year each for three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. The sentences will run concurrently for a total of five years.

Alexssandra Chenault was sentenced to 360 days in jail for facilitation to second-degree assault.
