A former New York Police Department officer who randomly fired 14 shots into another car after downing beer and whiskey will spend nine years in prison.

Brendan Cronin was sentenced Wednesday in White Plains. He pleaded guilty in September to attempted murder, assault and drunken driving.

Joseph Felice (feh-LEES') and Robert Borrelli were stopped at a red light in Pelham (PEHL'-uhm) when Cronin started firing at them on April 29, 2014.

Felice was hit six times and still has a bullet in his chest. Borrelli escaped injury and rushed his friend to the hospital.

Cronin pleaded guilty in September.
