Martin Luther King Jr., 27, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for viciously assaulting and shooting at his girlfriend during an argument in Oct. 2016 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

In May 2017, King Jr. pled guilty to first-degree assault and use of a firearm in a crime of violence, according to a release from the Office of the State’s Attorney for Anne Arundel County.

King Jr. will serve the first five years of his 20 year sentence without the possibility of parole for first-degree assault.

The release states King Jr. knocked his girlfriend to the floor, grabbed her by the sweatshirt and “picked her up over his head and threw her” during an argument at a home.

Following the attack, the woman left in her car and was followed by King Jr. in his vehicle. According to the release, he drove into oncoming traffic, pulled up beside her, and fired multiple gunshots at her car.
