Gang Member Gets 35 Years For Killing 3, Wounding 3 Others

View Comments

SAN BERNARDINO (AP) — A San Bernardino gang member has been sentenced to 35 years to life in prison for attacks that killed three people and wounded three others.

The San Bernardino Sun says 25-year-old Bryant Urias was sentenced Wednesday under a plea bargain. He received more than five years off the sentence because of prison credits and time served.

He pleaded guilty in August to voluntary manslaughter and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say Urias went on a five-month shooting spree in San Bernardino in 2005 and 2006 that killed two men and a 16-year-old and wounded three people, one of whom remains on life support.

Prosecutors say there was no specific motive for the attacks.

Urias was arrested in March 2006 at a home where he’d been hiding after a nearly three-hour standoff with authorities.
