Suspected gang member gets life for murder
A suspected gang member has been sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for the 2008 murder of a man.
ABC 7 is reporting that José Mauricio Cruz-Méndez, 23, of Takoma Park, was convicted Friday of murdering 28-year-old Jairon Jeremias Osorio.
Prosecutors said Cruz-Méndez shot Osorio in the head and back while he was watching his car. A Prince George's County Police heard the shots, saw Cruz-Méndez running from the area and gave chase.
