LOCKPORT – Michael D. Agee, who is awaiting sentencing March 14 for two armed robberies, pleaded guilty Friday to shooting a man who was sitting in a parked car July 14 on Eighth Street in Niagara Falls.

Agee, 20, of 16th Street in the Falls, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and accepted a sentencing cap of five years in prison plus three years’ post-release supervision. Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas will sentence him May 10.

But the sentence for the shooting of Lafayette Lewis, who was wounded in the arm, could be added to whatever Agee receives for two holdups.

On Nov. 15, a jury found Agee guilty of attempted first-degree robbery for a holdup try at Rizzo’s Used Furniture on 18th Street, and of first- and second-degree robbery for robbing a food delivery man at 16th Street and Cleveland Avenue. That sentence could total as much as 35 years.
