TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty and was given a 40-year prison sentence for the drive-by shooting of a Memorial High School freshman in Tulsa.

Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1Q8IRAL ) reports 22-year-old Samuel Fullbright pleaded guilty Tuesday for the 2009 slaying of Jacob Daniel “J.J.” Barnes. Prosecutors say Barnes was shot as he walked home from school with his younger sister.

Barnes’ sister testified that the shooters yelled gang-related slurs at her brother before firing at him. Detectives have classified Barnes’ death as gang-related. They say Barnes was not a known gang member.
