Albany man admits killing member of rival gang

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. - A Albany man admitted fatally shooting another man as he drove through a city intersection.

The Albany District Attorney's office says Jallah Drake, 21, pleaded guilty Friday to Manslaughter in the 1st-Degree in a plea bargain that calls for him to be sentenced to 15 years in prison for causing the death of Richard Gibbs on Nov. 29, 2011

Investigators say the killing of Robert Gibbs, 25, a convicted drug dealer, stemmed from disputes between two city gangs.

Drake is scheduled to be sentenced March 22.
