Gangbangers sentenced for Sacramento shooting death

District Attorney Jan Scully announced that Manuel Alvarez, Jr., Edward Garcia and Hector Garcia were sentenced by the Honorable Greta Curtis Fall after a jury convicted the defendants of first degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and the allegation that the crimes were committed for the benefit of the Norteno criminal street gang.

Alvarez was sentenced to 132 years 8 months to life, Edward Garcia was sentenced to 109 years 4 months to life and Hector Garcia, who had a prior strike conviction for carjacking, was sentenced to 143 years 8 months to life.

In August 2007, Alvarez, Hector Garcia, Edward Garcia and other Varrio Gardenland Norteno gang members arranged to fight a group of men following a road rage incident earlier that day. The arranged fight took place in the middle of Eleanor Avenue, in front of a birthday party for a one year-old child. Shortly after the fight erupted, Alvarez shot 13 rounds at the victims’ group with a .40 caliber handgun. Stephen “Bo” Clay was shot in the back and died at the scene. Gary Motheral and Ali Khan were struck by bullets but survived.

Sacramento Police Department homicide detectives worked tirelessly to locate and interview the participants in the fight and were able to identify the shooter and key co-conspirators. Deputy District Attorney Sean Laird said, “The verdict and sentences in this case reflect the seriousness of these crimes. Justice will be served for those who resort to extreme violence on our city streets as an answer to perceived acts of disrespect.”
