A 46-year-old Cincinnati man who reportedly thought people were trying to kill him was sentenced to prison Thursday for one of two random shootings last summer on Interstate 70.
Randall Brian Sizemore was sentenced to spend seven to nine years in prison for felonious assault and a weapons charge in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court, our news partner WHIO-TV reported.
Sizemore was convicted of shooting at a 25-year-old driver on July 11 from his pickup truck. The driver suffered a small graze wound to his leg and crashed into the median, police said.
The same day, a 911 caller reported his car was shot while he was driving on North Broad Street in Fairborn.
When Fairborn police caught up to Sizemore and arrested him, they said he had a loaded firearm in his pickup. He reportedly admitted to using methamphetamine, and police found the suspected drug in his wallet, according to court documents.
“He was paranoid and thought others were trying to harm him,” Greene County Prosecutor Stephen Haller wrote in court documents.
Sizemore is charged with felonious assault in that case, with his next hearing March 10 in Greene County Common Pleas Court.
