ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The man convicted of killing another man in Rochester before skipping town was sentenced on Wednesday.

A judge sentenced 34-year-old Jaquan Moore to 23 years to life in prison for second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon. He was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision.


According to prosecutors, Moore got into a verbal argument with Amos Harring, 41, and another person in a park on Oct. 20, 2018. Moore then threatened and pulled a gun on Harring and his friend. Moore later saw the two on Second Street, where prosecutors say he shot Harring in the forehead, killing him.

Moore was arrested nine days later in Chicago.
