NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – A judge sentenced a man to 35 years to life for a deadly Harlem shooting in June 2007.

It was an outburst of extreme violence that made Judge Michael Obus hand down the maximum sentence to 26-year-old Daniel Israel.

In June 2007, a minor dispute turned violence when Israel fired a gun at least seven times into a crowd, killing 26-year-old Justin Dandridge.

Dandridge was a subway conductor and father of a 2-year-old girl and had tried to break up the fight, his father said.

“Thirty-five years. I supposed he won’t be able to kill anybody else,” he said.

In addition to killing Dandridge, Israel shot two others and tried to kill two police officers who arrived at the scene.
