JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man convicted of two counts of attempted murder in July was sentenced this week to two consecutive life sentences.

Ricky Thomas Oliver, 47, will serve the two consecutive life sentences after he finishes serving a previous 20-year sentence for the sale of cocaine, according to a release from the State Attorney's Office.

Each life sentence term carries a minimum of 25 years. Oliver also received a 15-year sentence for shooting or throwing deadly missiles.

According to the release, Oliver, who was standing near a parked vehicle, allegedly shot Kyle Holden and and William Lee in December 2009 as they approached him in another car to see if he needed any help.

Holden and Lee were able to flee to a nearby gas station and call the police for help.
