A Brooklyn man who robbed several convenience stores at gunpoint in November 2018 has been sentenced to 43 years in prison.

Elgin Brack, 24, was sentenced in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday for a robbery spree that took place on Nov. 26, 2018, that began with the shooting of a Duane Reade employee during a botched robbery attempt at the 60-02 Roosevelt Ave. store in Woodside. He then went on to rob a 7-Eleven in Woodside and two Rite Aid stores—one in Astoria and the other in Jamaica.

Brack was convicted following a two-week trial in March 2020 of three counts of robbery, one count of attempted robbery, one count of conspiracy to commit robbery, one count of discharging a firearm during a crime of violence and three counts of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.
