A Baltimore man will spend the next 15 years in prison after he was found guilty of shooting his ex-girlfriend back in 2017. 

Kareem Siscoe was found guilty on Thursday of two counts of first-degree assault and handgun use in a crime of violence for two non-fatal shootings. 

On December 7, 2017, police responded to the 4000 block of Pascal Ave after reports of a shooting. When they got to the scene, they found one woman who said her and her friend were shot at by her friend's ex-boyfriend while they were fighting. The woman identified the shooting suspect as Siscoe. 

20 minutes after police got to the scene, Siscoe's ex-girlfriend showed up to the hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to her left arm and to the left side of her torso. 

Investigators were able to use an advanced FBI cell site tower data and mapping software to see that Siscoe's cell phone was at the location at the time of the shooting. 

“These women did not deserve to have their lives threatened because of a simple dispute, and I am most thankful that they both survived,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “I am equally pleased that we were able to secure a sentence that removes one more violent and reckless individual from our streets with the aptitude for terrorizing those closest to him.”

Siscoe will have the possibility of parole after five years in prison.
