August 6, 2019

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A trio of Los Angeles-area gang members has been sentenced to prison for a 2017 shooting that wounded a little boy.

The district attorney’s office says 24-year-old Luis Julian Perez was sentenced Tuesday to 120 years to life in state prison.

Sentences of 30 years to life were ordered for 36-year-old Edgar Manuel Rosas and Salvador Sanchez.

The gunfire was aimed at a group of men in Compton. The boy was in a passing car.

Perez, Rosas and Sanchez were all found guilty of two counts of attempted murder and three counts of shooting at an occupied car.

Perez was also convicted of three counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter.
