NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man has been sentenced to life in prison for the unintended fatal shooting of another man during what authorities described as a gang-related dispute.

Federal prosecutors say 29-year-old Arthur Stanley, of Hartford, was sentenced Wednesday after being found guilty by a jury in December 2016 of engaging in a violent crime in aid of racketeering in the July 2011 shooting of Keith Washington.

Prosecutors say Stanley, a gang member, attempted to shoot and kill a member of a rival street gang who was talking with the 23-year-old Washington on the front porch of a Hartford home. He missed his intended target and struck Washington, of Windsor, instead.

Stanley was also ordered to pay almost $13,000 to Washington’s family for funeral and related expenses.
