WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A Wilmington man will serve at least 15 years in prison for his part in a shooting death during a drug deal two years ago.

Local media outlets report that 22-year-old Nicholas Bannerman was sentenced on Monday to 15 to 18 years in prison.

He had been charged with second-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery in the October 2013 shooting death of Angelo Freeman who was shot during a drug deal.

Two other men have been sentenced to between 20 and 25 years in prison in the case.

Authorities say that Bannerman cooperated with authorities in the investigation. Investigators said it wasn’t clear which of the three fired the shot that killed Freeman.
