Jaquan Henderson was sentenced on April 20th, 2023 to ten years in prison related to a shooting incident that occurred on School Street in Yonkers on July 16th, 2022.

In a press release by Westchester District Attorney Mimi Rocah, she describes the horror of the crimes.

This defendant unleashed a torrent of gunfire on a crowd of people enjoying a summer night last year, and terrorized a community that had endured another shooting just hours before, and multiple other shootings earlier that week. We are thankful that a dangerous gunman has been removed from our streets and justice has been served
