LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Two gang members were sentenced Thursday to 15 years each in state prison for shooting a USC track athlete in the legs in 2008.

Travon Reed, 23, of Los Angeles, and 24-year-old Horasio Kimbrough, of Inglewood, were immediately sentenced after both pleaded no contest to one count attempted murder and admitted a gang allegation, Deputy District Attorney Steve Dickman of the Hardcore Gang Division said.

Bryshon Nellum was shot about 2 a.m. on Oct. 31, 2008, as he and friends were leaving a restaurant near Vermont Avenue and 29th Street in Los Angeles.

Dickman said the two defendants mistook Nellum, who was not a gang member, for a rival.

Reed and Kimbrough were arrested three months later by Los Angeles police.

      Not as bad as it sounds, it was only a USC athlete.
