A man who gunned down a Richmond man in an alley is scheduled to spend close to two decades behind bars.

Lawrence Reid pleaded guilty to second degree murder charges last week, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch. Reid shot and killed Andre Harper in September 2012. He was also injured in the shooting, but prosecutors argued his motive may have been robbery. Before he was captured by authorities, police said Reid reportedly fled to New York in order to avoid capture.

Reid was sentenced to 19 years in prison.
