WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – A man accused of a fatal shooting at Club 609 in 2011 pleaded guilty Monday to voluntary manslaughter.

Garry Orlando Hines was sentenced to 51-71 months in prison.

Hines was arrested and charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of Cornelius Tremayne Blanks.

The judge explained to the jury that witnesses set to testify, were not going to testify against Hines. The judge also said that both Hines and Blanks were involved in gangs.

Investigators say a fight broke out at the club and that's when Blanks was shot.  

Hines' plea deal also includes previous drug charges.
