INDICE DE GALERIAS
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A member of a Native American gang has been sentenced to 43 years in federal prison for shooting and killing a fellow gang member.
Shaun Martinez was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court.
Martinez pleaded guilty in December to one count of murder resulting from using a firearm in a violent crime.
In a plea agreement, Martinez admitted that he shot and killed Jeremee Kraskey in south Minneapolis in February 2011 to keep him from giving information to law enforcement.
Martinez was part of a federal case filed against 25 members of the Native Mob. Prosecutors accused gang members of using violence and intimidation to keep the gang in power.
Authorities say the gang is most active in Minnesota and Wisconsin but also in Michigan, North Dakota and South Dakota.
