    Man Sentenced to Prison for Drug Shooting

    A judge has sentenced a man to 15 to 17 years in prison in the shooting death of a Massachusetts man during a drug exchange.

    The Salem News reports 21-year-old Xavier Collazo was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter.

    Prosecutors say Collazo shot and killed 27-year-old Benjamin Magee in March 2016, after Magee had agreed to go with an acquaintance to buy crack cocaine from Collazo.

    Prosecutors say the acquaintance owed Collazo money, and a struggle broke out during the drug exchange.
