LONG BEACH (AP) — A 19-year-old Long Beach man has been sentenced to 202 years in state prison for gunning down two teenagers at a birthday party in 2008.

Izac McCloud was sentenced Thursday after he was prosecuted as an adult for the murders he committed at age 16.

McCloud was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder and 46 counts of assault with a firearm last month.

His co-defendant, 22-year-old Jonzel Stringer, was also convicted and will be sentenced on Nov. 16.

Prosecutors say Stringer got into a fight with gang rivals at the party.

McCloud and Stringer then fired into the crowd, where prosecutors say 46 partygoers were in the “kill zone.” A 17-year-old boy was shot in the leg.

    Good News a sentence that fits the crime these young kids who commit crimes like this get worse. like that Ohio man who went to prison for some non-violent crime then came out and within weeks killed and dismember those three people. Jails do not rehabilitate and people like this seem to get more vicious and hardened as they age..just the facts.

    did mexican gang members die? if so then obvious racism was done to the shooters who were probably using self defense.
