Man convicted in murder of 4 in San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- A jury has convicted the last defendant in a San Bernardino gang shooting that killed four and wounded two others in July 2000.

The San Bernardino Sun reports (http://bit.ly/W1sAxJ ) Froylan Chiprez was found guilty Monday of four counts of murder and two of attempted murder.

Law enforcement called the incident the “dead presidents” shooting because targets were leaders of local gangs meeting at a San Bernardino home.

Chiprez was arrested in Mexico on June 21, 2011, and was the last of the suspects to go to trial. Two others were convicted and sentenced to the death penalty. A third accepted a plea bargain before trial.

Because he was extradited from Mexico, prosecutors can't seek the death penalty. Chiprez faces life without possibility of parole at his sentencing hearing Jan. 9.
