Drive by Shooting

Home > Violent Crimes > Drive by Shooting


Under Arizona law (A.R.S. 13-1209), a person commits a “drive-by shooting” if they intentionally discharge a firearm from a motor vehicle at a person, other occupied motor vehicle, or an occupied structure.  Because a drive-by shooting involves a firearm it will be charged as a “dangerous” offense, meaning the judge will be required to sentence the accused to prison if they are convicted.  The punishments required for someone convicted of a drive-by shooting are extremely serious.  It is absolutely vital that you get an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney on your side immediately.


Possible Punishments for Drive-By Shooting

  • First Offense: Mandatory 7-21 years in prison, with 10.5 years being the presumptive term;
  • If you have 1 Historical Prior Felony Conviction: 14-28 years in prison, with 15.75 years being the presumptive term;
  • If you have 2 Historical Prior Felony Convictions: 21-35 years in prison, with 28 years being the presumptive term.
