NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who fatally shot a member of a rival gang in 2011 has been sentenced to serve 80 years in prison.
The New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/2wZ6SSH ) reports that 30-year-old Jermaine Harris was sentenced Wednesday for the shooting of Daryl McIver on his 20th birthday in a late-night ambush.
Harris was convicted of murder, first-degree robbery and carrying a pistol without a permit.
Prosecutors say McIver was a member of the Crips, while Harris was a member of the Bloods, and the gangs had an ongoing dispute in the summer of 2011.
