FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- One of the men responsible for riddling an ambulance that was transporting a stabbing victim and a passenger vehicle with 35 bullets last September has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Traneilous Jackson, 24, of Fort Wayne will serve 60 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to four counts of attempted murder last month. The plea agreement called for a 60-year sentence and the judge accepted that plea agreement Wednesday.

Four people were shot but amazingly none were killed in the gunfire at Piere's September 9th. One of the victims was the driver of the ambulance.

Jackson was one of two gunmen who are facing charges. The other gunman, Dontay Martin was convicted on nine counts, four of which were attempted murder this month. The jury deliberated for less than an hour. His sentencing is coming next week.
