2 sentenced for roles in shooting deaths of N.Y. detectives

The Associated Press

NEW YORK- Two members of a drug gang have been sentenced to prison for their roles in the shooting deaths of two police detectives posing as gun traffickers.

Paris Bullock and Michael Whitten received prison terms of 25 years and 27 years, respectively, at their sentencing on Wednesday.

Detectives James Nemorin, 36, and Rodney Andrews, 34, were shot in the head and dumped on a Staten Island street in March 2003 after their sting operation aimed at buying a Tec-9 submachine gun went awry.

Bullock, 24, and Whitten, 22, had pleaded guilty in December to charges linked to the shooting deaths.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the alleged shooter in the case, 24-year-old Ronell Wilson, who is scheduled to go on trial next month. He has pleaded not guilty in state court to first-degree murder.
