DENVER (AP) - A Denver man who shot a 13-year-old boy to death in gang-related violence last summer has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

A judge on Thursday sentenced 18-year-old Lonnie White, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for shooting Reysean Abram while he was riding his bike home from a party on Aug. 30, 2013. The shots were fired from a moving car.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1tsGGwC ) that Abram’s mother told the judge she had forgiven White, who was a member of a rival gang.

Police say Marquise Lewis gave White the gun and drove the car. He will be in court in August on first-degree murder charges.

Prosecutors withdrew charges against a juvenile who was also linked to the shooting.
