BUFFALO, N.Y. - A member of the 10th Street Gang will spend the next 30 years behind bars.
Michael Corchado-Jamieson, 20, of Buffalo was found guilty of two counts of Murder in Aid of Racketeering in connection with the April 17, 2006 shooting deaths of Darinell Young and Brandon MacDonald, and two counts of Attempted Murder in Aid of Racketeering in connection with shootings on April 26, 2006 and June 4, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph M. Tripi, says Corchado-Jamieson was a member of the 10th Street Gang when he participated in these shootings.
Officials say Corchado-Jamieson, along with numerous other 10th Street gang members, retaliated against individuals they suspected to be rival gang members. In the process, Darinell Young and Brandon MacDonald, who were not rival gang members but were merely at the wrong place at the wrong time, were shot to death.
