Shakor “Sha” Rodriguez, 23, was also sentenced to five years of post-release supervision for smuggling 73 guns and 40 high-capacity magazines from the South to his native Bronx and Manhattan, prosecutors said.

“He brought some of the guns in duffel bags on the bus and then sold them to an undercover NYPD officer,” Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark said in a statement.

“The influx of guns threatens the safety of Bronxists,” she said. “I thank our partners at the NYPD for intercepting these weapons before they landed on our streets.”

Rodriguez was a student at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee, when he brought the guns into the Big Apple between July 17, 2020 and December 22, 2021, according to the charges against him.

Of the guns the student moved — and sold to a police officer who paid between $1,000 and $1,500 per gun — 59 were loaded firearms, according to prosecutors. The sales were conducted in Rodriguez’s former neighborhood on Weeks Avenue in the Bronx or on Allen Street in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, according to prosecutors.
