PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Pittsfield man has pleaded guilty to his role in the shooting death of another man during a drug deal in a supermarket parking lot.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that 22-year-old Peter Campbell apologized in court Thursday for the November 2014 death of Anthony Gamache.

Campbell was sentenced to up to six years in prison after pleading guilty to charges including involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities say Campbell, Gamache and another man were in a car in the Pittsfield parking lot when the 29-year-old Gamache was shot in the leg.

The Goshen man was treated at a hospital and sent home with the bullet still in his leg. He died the next day. An autopsy determined he died due to a blood clot caused by the gunshot wound.

The alleged shooter is awaiting trial.
