Sacramento gang members convicted in retaliation shooting

Isaac Givens and Cesar Santana, members of the Norteno street gang, were convicted Friday of carrying out a 2010 retaliation shooting, according to a release from the Sacramento District Attorney's office.

Givens got into an argument with a rival gang member, leading to the shooting and hospitalization of Vincent Garay, Givens' fellow gang member, the DA's office said.

Detectives doing surveillance on the rival's house saw Givens drive Santana to the house five days later.

Santana got out and fired multiple shots into the home.

Although several people were there, no one was injured.

Police pursued and arrested Santana and Givens.

Based on their convictions, the two men face sentences of 15 years to life in prison.
