MURRIETA – An 18-year-old gang member who shot into a group of people in San Jacinto was sentenced today to 10 years in prison.
Angel Ray Valenzuela pleaded guilty last month to two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and gang membership charges, and could have faced much more time had he been convicted of the original charges of five counts of
attempted murder, three counts of assault, conspiracy to commit a felony and belonging to a street gang.
Gang allegations were attached to each count.
A 15-year-old boy standing in a front yard was wounded in the June 17 attack on Timothy Drive near Evans Street, in San Jacinto.
He has since recovered.
