O.C. gang member convicted of murder during Santa Ana robbery attempt
A member of an Anaheim street gang was convicted of murder Wednesday in the shooting death of a 46-year-old man during an attempted robbery, authorities said.
Albert Lubo Ruedas, 23, was charged with fatally shooting Daniel Lopez, 46, as he walked alone on a Santa Ana street on July 29, 2008, the Orange County district attorney's office said.
Ruedas was charged with confronting Lopez with an unknown accomplice with the intent to commit a robbery, according to prosecutors. Lopez, who was shot four times, collapsed and called 911.
Lopez was taken to a hospital, where he died about an hour after the early morning attack.
Ruedas is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 26 at the Fullerton courthouse.
