A Walbrook man was sentenced to 100 years for fatally shooting a man in 2007 along Gwynns Falls Parkway.

Michael Wallace, 24, of the 3100 block of Gwynns Falls Parkway was sentenced Friday to 30 years for second-degree murder in the death of Sterling Carr, 28, on June 12, 2007. Judge Wanda K. Heard also sentenced Wallace to 20 years for using a handgun in the crime and 25 years for each of two cases of first-degree assault. All the terms are consecutive.

According to police, Carr was with a group of people on Gwynns Falls Parkway when Wallace walked by them about 10:30 p.m. About a half-hour later, Carr walked with two others to his car, which was parked nearby in the 2400 block of N. Ellamont St.

Carr and the others got into the vehicle while Wallace, holding a gun, approached them and opened fire, striking Carr in the left shoulder, police said. Wallace also fired into the back seat of the vehicle, police said, though the passengers escaped unharmed.

Carr died about an hour later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
