Wildboys sentenced for drive-by shootings at rival gang


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Three men tied to a violent street gang in South Carolina have pleaded guilty to attempted murder for retaliation shootings at rival gang members that injured innocent bystanders.

Authorities announced that Brian Manigo, known as “B-Nasty,” and Damien Robinson, known as “Sacked Up,” were sentenced Friday in federal court to 10 years in prison. Both are from Green Pond. Kelvin Mitchell, known as “Kevy Boy,” of Ruffin was sentenced to 39 months. They also must pay for their victims’ medical costs.

Prosecutors say all three were members or associates of the Wildboys gang.

In a May 2011 drive-by shooting, Mitchell drove while Manigo fired into a crowd.

Robsinson drove in an April 2015 drive-by shooting. Robinson gave his rifle to a fellow gang member, who shot at a home.
