A jury convicted a one-time Sacramento street gang member today on a 1991 double murder that took place outside a Stockton Boulevard club.
The verdict came back against Ricky Tran, now 38, for the Oct. 25, 1991, drive-by shooting deaths of Huy "Joey" Nguyen, 23, and Quon Anh Tran, 23, outside the Craven Club.
Deputy District Attorney Sean Laird described the two men who were killed as innocent bystanders who were not involved in street gangs.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Timothy M. Frawley scheduled Tran's sentencing for Jan. 6.
Tran was arrested in January 2010 in Cheltenham, Pa., after two children reported to police that their father was holding a knife to their mother's throat, according to a district attorney's press release.
Fingerprints identified the suspect as Tran, who was then sent back to Sacramento to face the murder charges.
