Derrick Yancey, 27, of Buffalo, a member of the now-defunct 10th Street Gang, was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara to serve a 168-month federal prison term for his conspiracy conviction under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph M. Tripi said that from 2005 through 2010 Yancey was an active member of the gang and on Sept. 15, 2008 he drove other gang members to Busti Avenue where they shot and killed Omar Fraticello-Lugo, an alleged member of the rival and now-defunct 7th Street Gang, and injured two other men. Yancey is the latest of 44 members of the 10th Street Gang or their associates charged and convicted.
