WILKES-BARRE, Pa. -- A young man will spend about three to nine years in jail for a deadly shooting in Wilkes-Barre.

Kahzmeek Prater, 19, was sentenced Friday on involuntary manslaughter and drug charges.

In September, he admitted shooting Jacob Shedlock last November at a home along North Pennsylvania Avenue while the two were smoking marijuana.
