Gang members sentenced to long terms in shooting

A pair of gang members were sentenced to prison Friday in connection with a gang war-related shooting in 2009 that critically injured a 15-year-old bystander, according to a press release from the Sacramento County District Attorney's office.

Judge Lloyd Connelly sentenced shooter Allen Oliver to 72 years to life in state prison after his January conviction for attempted murder and shooting into an inhabited dwelling or vehicle.

Quincy Washington received a sentence of 30 years to life for abetting Oliver.

Both men were teens at the time of the crime, in September 2009.

The shooting was an ambush of gang members from G-Mobb and Guttah Boyz, who were attacked by Oliver and associates from the Gunz-Up/F.A.B. gang organization.

Prosecutors say a gang war between the factions went on from May 2008 to January 2010, during which there were 29 shootings and multiple homicides.
