District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced that a man was sentenced after shooting a FedEx employee in the back as he walked out of a building in Brownsville. The incident was caught on surveillance video, according to the District Attorney’s office. J’von Johnson, 25, of Brownsville, was sentenced by Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice John Hecht to 40 years’ incarceration in state prison following a conviction which rendered charges of second-degree attempted murder and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. 

Surveillance footage had captured the incident as it unfolded, depicting Johnson shooting the victim then walking away. After being arrested, Johnson gave the police a statement identifying himself in the video and admitting having committed the shooting. 

The case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant District Attorney Farin Chasin, of the District Attorney’s Orange Zone Trial Bureau, under the supervision of Assistant District Attorney Danielle Eaddy, Bureau Chief.
