Colton gang member who shot and killed 19-year-old Michael McLeod outside a party was sentenced Wednesday to life in state prison without the possibility of parole. Andrew Robert Ramirez, 21, was convicted in November of murder and special allegations, including the use of a firearm, during a trial in San Bernardino Superior Court. The jury also found true a charge of special circumstances for committing a robbery to benefit a street gang. The special circumstance carried the life sentence, explained Deputy District Attorney Sharon Caldwell. Ramirez was also sentenced to 25 years to life for the murder and 10 years for the special allegations. However, Ramirez will not go to prison right away. He is awaiting trial as a defendant in another case for a home invasion robbery in June 2007 in Colton. Ramirez shot McLeod while he was leaving a party with a group of people in the 600 block of West L Street in Colton on April 20, 2007. McLeod was shot in the head and died at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, according to Colton police.
Police arrested Ramirez about two months later after he ran from them near 6th and Congress streets. He was captured after a short foot chase and booked into jail.
