Phoenix Arizona- Alright folks, buckle up because this one’s a doozy. Picture this: a guy gets his heart broken and decides to deal with it by going on a six-month drive-by shooting spree. Yeah, you heard that right. This isn’t some twisted Hollywood plot, this actually happened right here in Phoenix.
Our main character in this real-life drama is 24-year-old Manuel Sierra. After a romantic relationship went south, Sierra decided to take out his frustrations on an extended family, of all things. Over the course of six months, Sierra was connected to 11 drive-by shootings. And get this, during at least half of these incidents, the homes were occupied. Talk about a nightmare!
Fast forward to November 17, and Sierra finds himself sentenced to 22 years in prison, with 555 days already served. The charges? Stalking with fear of death, domestic violence, and two counts of drive-by shooting. I mean, seriously, what the hell was this guy thinking?
So there you have it, folks. A love story turned sour, leading to a six-month reign of terror in Phoenix. As Sierra starts his long stint behind bars, we’re left shaking our heads, wondering how a broken heart led to such a shocking series of events.
