Bristol Township Man Pleads Guilty to Attempted Homicide in 2020 Winder Village Shooting
A Bristol Township man pleaded guilty for a double shooting that took place in the Winder Village section of the township last year.
Sincere McNeil, 20, pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted homicide at a hearing in the county court of common pleas on September 13th.
McNeil was sentenced by Bucks County Judge Gary Gilman to five to 10 years in state prison. He was given credit for time served since his arrest last April and ordered to have no contact with the victims
Charges of aggravated assault, discharging a firearm into an occupied structure, fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, and other offenses, were dropped according to online court records.
McNeil, was driving through Winder Village last April when his vehicle was struck from behind at the cross section of Winder Drive and Spruce Street
McNeil, court documents revealed, jumped out of his vehicle, firing shots into the windshield of the vehicle, wounding both occupants in the arm.
A home on the 900 block of Elmhurst Avenue was also struck by gunfire witnesses told Lower Bucks Source.
A neighborhood pole camera installed several years ago by the township captured the shooting on video.
After firing on vehicle, McNeil tried to flee the area, however officers responding to ‘shots fired” calls spotted McNeil’s white Nissan Maxima fleeing the neighborhood, which led to a chase along Veterans Highway (Route 413) that ended with him crashing just off of Lincoln highway and Veterans Ave.
McNeil fled on foot and shortly thereafter was taken into custody by Bristol authorities when he was found at a Toyota Dealership a short distance away, according to court records.
McNeil told police he was in the area driving to a friends house in Winder Village when the second vehicle began to follow him and upon hearing gunshots, he slammed his brakes and was rear ended by the other white sedan.
The judge also sentenced McNeil to 10 years of probation.
