22-year-old sentenced to 59 years in prison for 2008 Seattle gang shooting that killed teen


SEATTLE — A 22-year-old man has been sentenced to 59 years in prison for a gang shooting six years ago that killed a teen in Seattle.

D'Angelo Saloy was convicted last month of murder and attempted murder for the shooting on Halloween night in 2008 near Garfield High School. The drive-by shooting killed 15-year-old Quincy Coleman and wounded a second teen.

Police said Saloy and Coleman were members of rival gangs.

Saloy was sentenced Wednesday in King County Superior Court.
