A Sacramento County jury has found 24-year-old Roy Houston guilty of murder in a Feb. 17, 2005 shooting that prosecutors have described as a gang-retaliation killing.
Slain in the North Sacramento shooting was 21-year-old Donald McCall. Jurors also found Houston guilty of the attempted murder of Randall Hudson and Joseph McCoy, and found to be true the special circumstances of using a firearm, shooting from a car and committing the crime on behalf of a gang.
For a separate March 2005 incident, jurors also convicted Houston of the attempted murder of Kenneth Bell. They found to be true special circumstances of using a firearm and shooting at an occupied vehicle.
The crimes were committed, the jurors found, for the benefit of the Del Paso Heights Bloods street gang.
