A third member of the 10th Street gang pleaded guilty Tuesday to taking part in the 2006 killings of Brandon McDonald and Darinell Young.

Christopher Pabon, 22, of Buffalo admitted providing one of the guns used in the shooting deaths of the two innocent victims.

McDonald, 16, and Young, 45, were caught in the middle of a West Side drug war between the 10th Street and 7th Street gangs.

Pabon was one of six associates of the 10th Street Gang arrested in February and charged with taking part in the killings. The arrests were the result of an ongoing investigation by the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force, a multi-agency effort that includes state police and Buffalo police.
