Man sentenced in attempted murder of student near Arsenal Tech High School
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 4, 2014)— A man who pleaded guilty in connection with a shooting of a female student near the campus of Arsenal Tech High School back in June was sentenced Thursday.
William Alvies, 20, was sentenced to serve 42 years with 22 years to be executed in the Indiana Department of Corrected after pleading guilty to attempted murder and carrying a handgun without a license in November. Alvies also pleaded guilty to auto theft in an unrelated 2013 case.
Alvies admitted he waited for his ex-girlfriend to leave the high school, before approaching her in the school parking lot. Police said he fired several shots from a handgun, striking the 17-year-old victim in the shoulder.
The girl ran back into the school to seek help. Following a short search, police recovered the weapon in a nearby creek and apprehended Alvies.
