BOONE COUNTY - A member of the Latin Kings gang is going to prison for a long time.
Boone County State's Attorney Michele Courier announced today that 22 year-old Nicholas Martinez was sentenced to 26 years in prison. It stems from an incident that happened in February 2011.
Martinez fired at least five rounds into a vehicle in the area of the 400 block of Wedgewood Lane. It's suspected he was targeting a rival gang member, his girlfriend, and their two year-old child.
No one inside the vehicle was hit.
Martinez received the minimum sentence. He could've received 60 years in prison.
