A New Yorker who shot his ex-girlfriend in the head in a suicidal fury over their breakup has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.      

Ramon Lalondriz-Castillo apologized Friday through a Spanish interpreter for what he called "a moment that occurred very rapidly.''      

He pleaded guilty last month to attempted murder.      

Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Jon Veiga says Lalondriz-Castillo accosted his former girlfriend as she left her job at a drugstore in January 2010.

Prosecutors say he fired twice at Evimer Duclerc, stopping only because the gun jammed.    

Prosecutors say Lalondriz-Castillo left a suicide note in his car.      

One bullet lodged in the back of Duclerc's head but didn't penetrate her skull.

She says she can finally sleep again now that Lalondriz-Castillo has been sentenced.
