Darby, co-defendant Ryan N. Fingers, 16, of Aurora, and a 14-year-old juvenile were riding bikes on the 600 block of Woodlawn Avenue and confronted the 16-year-old victim, who they thought was a rival gang member, near his home. The two sides exchanged words and six shots were fired at the victim, three of which hit his leg, prosecutors said.

All three were arrested within minutes, authorities said.

Fingers' case was handled in adult court where he pleaded guilty in June and was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

The juvenile, now 15, also has pleaded guilty to aggravated battery with a firearm.

"Guns and gangs are a ticket to nowhere. I hope these prison sentences make other young people think twice about joining street gangs," Kane County State's Attorney Joe McMahon said.
