SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County Circuit Court judge on Thursday sentenced a 22-year-old man to 55 years in prison Thursday in connection with a gang-related murder that occurred more than two years ago on Salisbury's west side.

Keenan Jaquan Victor, 22, whose last address was Salisbury, had pleaded guilty in November to first-degree murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence. The Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office said the charges arose out of a BGF gang-related shooting death of 20-year-old Arnold Fagans that occurred on Jan. 12, 2012, in the parking lot of the West Road Apartment Complex on East Road in Salisbury. 

The sixth and final suspect to be tried in connection with Fagan's death, Victor was sentenced to life in the Maryland Department of Corrections, with all but 55 years suspended for the first-degree murder charge. He was also given 20 years with all but five years suspended, for the handgun charge.  The sentence for use of a handgun is to be served concurrently with the murder sentence.
