A teenager convicted of attempted murder was sentenced to state prison for 55 years to life in Yolo County Superior Court.
Ramiro Leon Jr., 18, of Woodland, was sentenced Monday by Judge Stephen L. Mock. A jury in February convicted Leon of attempted murder in a gang-related drive-by shooting, the district attorney's office states.
Prosecutors said Leon was involved in a shooting September 2008 in Woodland's Campbell Park. The shooting stemmed from friction between gang members earlier in the day on a school bus,
Leon shot several times from a passenger seat of a car as it drove by the park. One young man was hit and seriously wounded.
Gunfire also struck a parked car, narrowly missing a young woman inside.
