Gang member convicted in drive-by that killed innocent man

STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A gang member has been convicted for his role in a drive-by shooting that killed an innocent man in an eastern Pennsylvania home.

Twenty-two-year-old Brandon Wilson, of East Stroudsburg, told reporters he was convicted for something he "didn't even do," but a Monroe County jury disagreed Wednesday. They took just two hours to convict him of third-degree murder in the shooting death of Darcey Kravchenko.

Monroe County prosecutors say Wilson was part of the Black P-Stones gang who drove to the victim's home in July 2014 and fired shots, apparently hoping to hit another man staying there who they blamed for a drug-deal-turned-robbery.

Instead, Kravchenko was awakened by the gunfire, stood up and was hit in the head with one of the shots.

Wilson faces up to 40 years in prison when he's sentenced in September.
