Bill would increase penalties for drive-by shooters
LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Michigan lawmakers are looking to crack down on suspected drive-by shooters.
Michigan lawmakers want to get tougher on suspected drive-by shooters.
Legislation expected to be approved Tuesday by the state Senate would increase prison time for people convicted of intentionally shooting from a vehicle.
Right now those convicted could get up to four years in prison, but the new bill would change that to 10 years.
Maximum sentences would be higher if victims are injured or killed.
