Shooter convicted of 2010 murder at Auburn Blvd. teen party

A Sacramento Superior Court jury today convicted Jaivonne Flenory-Davis of first-degree murder in the July 11, 2010, shooting death of 14-year-old Lanajah Nachelle Dupree at an Auburn Boulevard teen party.

Judge Patrick Marlette scheduled a Sept. 7 sentencing date on Flenory-Davis, who is now 21.

According to testimony at trial, Flenory-Davis went to the party with a friend and the two of them were confronted by an estimated 10 to 15 gang members. After a fist fight broke out, Flenory-Davis retrieved a hand gun from a car and fired into the crowd, killing Dupree, a Sparks, Nev., resident who had been visiting friends in Sacramento.

Another bullet struck a second girl in the arm and then pierced her abdomen. Jurors convicted Flenory-Davis of attempted murder in that shooting. They also found that the shooting took place for the benefit of the Guttah Boys/Starz Up street gang.
