Nicholas Hill Sentenced in Shooting of Woman and Child

-- Valdosta, Ga. -- February 24, 2012 --

Nicholas Hill, 24 years old, was sentenced to 10 years on an aggravated assault charge for shooting a 26 year old woman and 9 year old boy in 2010.

The 26 year old woman was holding her 11-month old child at the time of the shooting. The shooting occurred in March of 2010 on the 1800 block of Claudia Circle. Hill was involved in a gang related dispute. His victims were innocent bystanders.

The prosecutor of the case, Brad Shealy, said "Mr. Hill along with several other people drove their cars over to the location, went down by the house. Words were passed and then Mr. Hill pulled a gun out and started shooting. The people were out in front of the house when he started shooting and he missed the person he was shooting at and hit two innocent people."

The female victim had been visiting from New Jersey.

Shealy went on to say that "any case when somebody is shot is bad, but when they're not even involved or even know who's doing the shooting and they get shot it makes it a little worse."

Nicholas Hill also received five years probation for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

    he did not kill anyone people and trust me when i tell you this the one walking the streets should be in jail not this kid i know this for a fact i was there, the gang leader should be there with initials of A. T. SNAP, If you do not live in the community you do not know jack trust me, if you remember the kid mother went for help and was decieved you all did not get who decieved them, there is much more to this case and it involves corruption within valdosta police department. maybe the reporter should have contacted the mother of this kid and i can assure they would get the truth

    That is a light sentence for firing a gun during a crime. Pulling a weapon should have been 10. Shooting it 20 plus time for shooting someone.
