A Henderson resident was sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison Wednesday on firearm possession charges.

U.S. District Judge Louise W. Flanagan sentenced Jammee D. Terry, 22, of 615 Vaughan St., to a total of 125 months imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release.

Terry was indicted by a grand jury in March 2013, on one count of possessing ammunition as a felon, two counts of possessing a firearm and ammunition as a felon, and two counts of possessing a stolen firearm and ammunition.

Assistant U.S. Attorney S. Katherine Burnette prosecuted the case of the government.

J. Franklin Jackson represented Terry.

On July 17, 2013, he pleaded guilty to possessing ammunition as a felon and two counts of possessing a firearm and ammunition as a felon.

According to the investigation, Terry entered a gas station in Henderson on Jan. 17, 2013, and while leaving the store, he attempted to strike another customer in the back of the head.

Terry then pulled out a loaded firearm and struck the victim in the head. When the victim tried to flee, Terry ran after him and discharged the firearm approximately 10 times and struck the victim in the foot.

In February 2013, Henderson Police officers arrested Terry following complaints that he had pointed a firearm at an adult female, her boyfriend and her infant in another car.

Investigation of this case was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives and the Henderson Police Department.
