Antonio Gonzales 19-year-old who thought he was shooting at a teen-age gang rival

08:35 |

Antonio Gonzales 19-year-old who thought he was shooting at a teen-age gang rival but ended up shooting the teen's mother in the neck, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday. The victim, Jessica Gonzales, survived but still has lasting health problems from the May 20 shooting. The intended target, an 18-year-old member of the gang CFM, was riding with his parents and his girlfriend in a Honda Civic when he noticed a Ford Explorer following them. At least one of the occupants was believed to be associated with the Sur Trece Locos gang. The 18-year-old man told his parents to pull into a gas station. The Ford Explorer did a U-turn and followed. The young man and the occupants of the other car got out, and the group argued. The man later told police that he told his parents and girlfriend to drive away in the Honda without him so they would be out of harm's way. A short while later, the Honda was at a stoplight at Northeast Halsey and 102nd Avenue when Ford pulled up. Antonio Jose Gonzales, then 18, started firing into the Honda, striking Jessica Gonzales, who is not a relation.
Antonio Gonzales pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to attempted aggravated murder with a firearm. He declined to make a statement when given an opportunity by Judge Eric Bergstrom Monday. In addition to Antonio Gonzales' sentence, two others in the car were sentenced earlier for their roles. Jesse Rivera Guerrero, 22, got 7 1/2 years in prison, and Isaac Torres-Reynoso, 17, got five years in prison
