Santa Ana gang member sentenced to life in prison for murders

A gang member was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for killing two teenagers and leaving a third in a coma, Orange County prosecutors said.

Prospero Guadarrama was convicted in the shooting deaths two years ago of Angel Secundino, 14, and Gabriel Perez, 15, in Santa Ana. Fernando Garcia, 16, was left in a coma after the attack.

The victims were shot in the head.

Guadarrama, now 21, was a juvenile at the time of the shootings but was tried as an adult.
