BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A gang member has been sentenced to 17 ½ years in prison for his role in the deaths of two men in a case of mistaken identity 10 years ago.

Douglas Harville was sentenced Monday in federal court in Buffalo. The 28-year-old is among 44 members and associates of Buffalo’s 10th Street Gang who’ve been convicted in a recent crackdown by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors say Harville was part of the gang from 2000 to 2010 and was one of seven shooters who opened fire on a group of people on the city’s west side in April 2006, wrongly believing them to be members of a rival gang. Two people were killed and four others injured.
