Michael Anthony Martin, 22, pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated assault and illegal possession of a firearm.

20:15 | , ,

In exchange for the plea, several charges were dropped, including attempted homicide, recklessly endangering another person, carrying a firearm without a permit and tampering with evidence. According to court documents:Martin shot at Shekir Thomas and Sharnell Thomas multiple times near the intersection of N. Sixth and Liberty streets in Allentown around 11:20 p.m. Nov. 6, 2006.Witnesses said Martin fled the scene and gave police a license plate number. The vehicle was stopped at Lehigh Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard minutes after the shooting and the driver, Derrick Lamb, was nabbed for having a pair of brass knuckles and cocaine on him, police said. Martin, a passenger in the car, was identified by witnesses as the shooter. Police said the shooting was gang-related and noted they found red bandannas, red hats, a red beaded bracelet and a red cell phone in the car, according to court documents. But the Lehigh County district attorney's office wouldn't say this week if Martin is a member of the Bloods street gang.
Martin is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 23 by Judge James T. Anthony. Lamb, 29, of Allentown pleaded guilty in July to possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and was sentenced in August to 10 to 23 months in jail followed by 12 months of probation. Lamb, who received credit for time served in jail since his arrest in November 2008, was paroled in September, according to court records.
