Three men were sentenced to death Thursday for the 2009 fatal shooting between two gangs that left two dead and two injured, local court said.

The Shanghai No.2 Intermediate People' s Court sentenced Zhang Hongfu, Liu Xiaohua and Ai Daiqing, major leaders of the two gangs to death for murder, drug dealing, illegally manufacturing firearms and ammunition, illegally possessing firearms, and the crime of interference with public administration, provocation and group fighting, according to a written statement issued by the court.

Eight other members of the gangs received jail terms from two years to life sentences for drug dealing, illegally manufacturing firearms and ammunition, illegally possessing firearms, provocation, or group fighting, the statement said.

Chinese law prohibits the private ownership of guns.

On May 22, 2009, the two gangs fought over a dispute of a drug debt of 20,000 yuan (3,000 U.S. dollars) and started shooting at the entrance of Huilihuayuan Residence on Changshou Road, Putuo District.
