From Andy Furillo:
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Kevin J. McCormick today sentenced Denishio Demmetrius Collins to prison for 58 years to life for the "friendly fire" shooting death of a fellow gang member four years ago.
A jury in February convicted Collins, 27, of first-degree murder in the June 27, 2005, killing of David A. Perkins, 22.
Collins and Perkins were two several members from the Oak Park Bloods' "Ridezilla" subset that had launched an attack on some suspected rival Crips. One of the bullets meant for the rivals, however, killed Perkins.
Jurors found that the fatal bullet came from a TEC 9 assault weapon fired by Collins.
