SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A man who drove a getaway car in a fatal gang shooting in Woodburn has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

The Statesman Journal reports Mark Antonio Camarena was sentenced in Marion County Circuit Court on Friday. The 23-year-old Camarena pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge in October.

Michael McGovern, 28, of Woodburn died of a gunshot wound in the September 2012 shooting.

Authorities say Camarena drove a green Honda sedan with Daniel Nepomuceno in the passenger seat. After McGovern flashed the two a hand signal indicating his gang affiliation, Nepomuceno shot him with a silver handgun. Camarena then drove away from the scene.

The 22-year-old Nepomuceno pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced in October to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years.
