Jeremy Webster Case

Jeremy Webster, a man accused of opening fire on a family and killing a 13-year-old boy in June 2018 was found guilty on all charges and sentenced to life without parole Wednesday.

Vaughn Bigelow Jr., 13, was killed in the shooting as a result of a gunshot wound to his head.

Webster, 27, was found guilty of 12 charges in all — murder, multiple counts of attempted murder, multiple counts of assault and attempted assault. He was given the maximum sentence for all charges.

Before handing out the sentence, the judge said this case was “unlike any other case” because of the level of tragedy and loss.

District Attorney Brian Mason echoed this after the sentencing and called the loss to the Bigelow family unspeakable.

“I’ve seen a lot of bad cases in my career, and this is one of the worst we have ever, ever seen,” he said.

Before Webster was sentenced, Vaughn’s mother, Meghan, asked the judge to give him the maximum sentence.

“The impact of what happened can’t be fully put into words,” she said.

Meghan also took the stand on the first day of trial and said the incident started when she was driving her three boys to the dentist’s office.

She testified when she tried to move into another lane of traffic to allow an emergency vehicle to pass that Webster became enraged that she had cut him off.

Meghan told the jury that he screamed obscenities at her and followed her into the dentist’s parking lot.

In the parking lot, Meghan said Webster pulled out a gun and shot at her and the children.

“I yelled to the boys he’s got a gun, run,” she testified.

Meghan was shot and injured during the attack, along with Vaughn’s brother, Asa, who was 7 at the time. He suffered from a brain injury and hearing loss in his right ear, among other injuries.

The long-delayed trial concluded after final statements Wednesday. It had started two weeks prior.

It took a jury only a few hours to find Jeremy Webster guilty of murder and attempted murder for the 2018 road rage shooting that killed 13-year-old Vaughn Bigelow and injured others.

Webster, 27, was convicted Wednesday in a deadly road rage incident that ended with him shooting down a family outside of a dentist’s office, killing a 13-year-old boy.

Webster was 23 years old when he was arrested. The shooting occurred back in 2018.

Webster pleaded not guilty to murder and attempted murder in the case.

In addition to allegedly killing 13-year-old Vaughn Bigelow, Webster was convicted of injuring the teen’s mother Meghan Bigelow and younger brother at the time.

He allegedly confessed to police that he was struggling with mental health issues after he was arrested.

“Mr. Webster is using insanity as an excuse for the cold-blooded murder of a 13-year-old child for his attempt to kill everyone else on scene. He knew exactly what he was doing and he should be held accountable and be found guilty on all counts which he is charged,” the prosecution said during closing arguments in court.

Webster pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. His lawyers say he suffers from schizoaffective bipolar disorder. But the prosecution said the crime was intentional and deliberate.

“He had a mood disorder that began at a very young age and it progressed, as it does, and eventually he reaches his 20s and he has schizoaffective bipolar disorder,” Webster’s defense attorney said.

He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for first-degree murder. As well as 48 years each for 6 counts of attempted murder and 32 years for 4 counts of assault. He was also convicted of attempted assault.

In a victim impact statement, Megan Bigelow said the impact of the crime on her family cannot be put into words. She said the verdict does not bring back her son Vaughn and that her surviving son Asa still deals with health impacts from the shooting.
