2012 House Bill 5737

Authorize enhanced penalties for drive-by shooting

Introduced in the House

June 13, 2012

Introduced by Rep. Stacy Erwin Oakes (D-95)

To authorize up to life in prison for intentionally discharging a firearm from a vehicle when this causes death (as in a “drive-by” shooting), and 15 to 20 years if someone is injured. These penalties would be on top of any imposed for assault, attempted murder, etc.
