Man gets 45 years in jail for St. Patrick's Day shooting

Posted: Updated:

One of two suspects arrested for a Greenville Avenue crime spree that left a man paralyzed will spend 45 years in jail.

Anthony Hill pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault and will serve three concurrent sentences.

The aggravated robbery sentence was the longest at 45 years. The other two sentences were for 20 and 25 years, respectively.

Police said Hill and Horace Jones kidnapped a woman in her apartment complex parking lot on March 18, 2012. They drove her around to several ATMs and tried to withdraw money.

Then, with the woman still in their car, they robbed Ryan Lusk as he and a friend were leaving the St. Patrick's Day festivities on Greenville Avenue. Hill shot Lusk, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down, police said.

The victim and his family were in the courtroom Friday. Lusk's mother said he still struggles physically and emotionally because of the shooting.
