UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — A man who shot his wife and tried to shoot his son and sister-in-law is being sentenced in Prince George’s County.

Edward McRavin will learn his fate Friday morning for a shooting outside the Family Crisis Center that took place on Mother’s Day two years ago. He earlier pleaded guilty to attempted murder and assault.

Prosecutors say the 51-year-old McRavin rode to the center on a bicycle and opened fire on his wife, son and sister-in-law. The only shot he fired before his gun jammed struck his wife in her upper body.

Prosecutors say that at the time of the shooting, McRavin’s wife had received a protective order against him, and McRavin’s visitation rights entitled him to see his son every Sunday under the supervision of the Family Crisis Center.
