A jury convicted a gang member, Osiris Lenin Garfias Pedraza, 23 of first-degree murder in the 2017 killing of Jonathan Hernandez, 22, who had ties to a rival Anaheim gang. Garfias Pedraza now faces a minimum sentence of life without the possibility of parole.
Garfias Pedraza was in one of three cars that went into rival gang territory in Anaheim on July 4, 2017. Hernandez, who was on the street, traded insults with the rival gang members as they drove through the neighborhood. The three cars left the neighborhood, but Garfias Pedraza went back. He shot and killed Hernandez to death at about 2:50 a.m.
