Gunman Sentenced to Life in Prison

The Hyde Park man who fatally shot 22-year-old Nicholas Martinez in Boston's South End in 2012 was sentenced to life in prison today after being convicted of murder.

The jury deliberated for less than a day before finding Raymond Concepcion guilty of first-degree murder under the theory of extreme atrocity or cruelty. He was also convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm in connection with the murder.

Judge Jeffrey Locke sentenced Concepcion to life in prison with the possibility of parole after a minimum of 20 years because he was a juvenile at the time he committed the murder.

Concepcion's two co-defendants, Jaquan Hill and Shakeem Johnson pleaded guilty to manslaughter on February 17. Each were sentenced to a term of 12 to 14 years in prison.
