OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A judge has sentenced a Vice Lord gang member in Columbus to 10 years in federal prison following two gang-related shootings.

The U.S. attorney's office says the sentence comes after Darmarcus Fisher pleaded guilty to possession of ammunition.

According to prosecutors, the ammo came from a gun fired on March 7, 2016, when those two shootings happened.

They say the shootings were between the Vice Lords and the Black Gangster Disciples.
