TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A 37-year-old man convicted of murder for shooting a man at a warehouse party in Tacoma was sentenced Thursday to 38 years in prison.

Pierce County prosecutors say Devennice Gaines shot 40-year-old Bruce Price in April 2012 after Price criticized Gaines for fighting with a man in a wheelchair.

The prosecutor’s office says Gaines is affiliated with a Blood street gang from Seattle and Price was reportedly affiliated with a rival Tacoma gang, the Hilltop Crips.
