FREEPORT - A Freeport man is facing 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced today for killing a rival gang member.

Ramiek Smalls was convicted of murder last month.

Prosecutors say Smalls had a long running feud with the victim, Lawrence Hartman.

According to officials, Smalls shot and killed Hartman outside Rumba Sky nightclub in Hempstead in 2011.

Police say two other men have already pleaded guilty in connection with the shooting.
