A judge has sentenced a man from Normal to 15 years in prison after attempted murder charges were dropped in a plea agreement.

Omarr Parks-Bullock, 24, has pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery with a firearm, stemming from a March 2021 shooting on Orlando Avenue in Normal.

Police said Parks-Bullock shot a 17-year-old boy and shot at a second victim. The injured teen had three gunshot wounds.

Prosecutors dropped 11 felony counts in the plea agreement, including charges of attempted first-degree murder, possession of a firearm without a FOID card and reckless discharge of a firearm.

Parks-Bullock will serve prison sentences consecutively for two other offenses.

He faces four years in prison for unlawful possession of a weapon in a penal institution, and two years in prison for aggravated assault. He also faces a three-year term of mandatory supervised release after his prison term and has a separated aggravated battery case pending.
