COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado Springs man has been sentenced to federal prison after being convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver.
Perry Suggs, 33, was sentenced to seven and a half years in federal prison, followed by three years on supervised release. Suggs was convicted in March of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
Prosecutors said Suggs was convicted after he shot at a pedestrian in the area of Jet Wing Drive and Fountain Boulevard in January 2018. The pedestrian was not hit by the shot.
Prosecutors said Suggs was a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang, and had at least one felony conviction.
