PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A man charged in connection to four attempted murders has been sentenced to 178 to 416 years in prison, the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office says.

Amin Ackridge was found guilty of all charges stemming from four incidents in 2015, including four counts of Attempted Murder, six counts of Robbery, Conspiracy, Aggravated Assault, and related weapons charges.

Officials say on June 6, 2015, Ackridge approached and robbed two men on Gransback Street.

During the course of the robbery, they say a neighbor came out to help and Ackridge shot him, paralyzing him for life from the waist down.

On June 25, 2015, officials say a man was walking to the train station to give his wife fare money. That's when they say Ackridge and another suspect pulled up alongside the victim, robbed, and shot the victim.

The third robbery happened on the June 26, 2015, on the 1800 block of Van Pelt Street.

Officials say Ackridge robbed the victim and shot him point blank in the chest.

Then on July 21, 2015, a victim was talking to a neighbor on Emerald Street when officials say Ackridge robbed and shot him twice in the back.

Ackridge was sentenced Monday.
