Former Marine acquitted of murder in killing of Valinda gang member - "Carlos Chavira of La Puente not guilty of murder in the Feb. 10, 2009, shooting death of Walter Zomoza.
Chavira, a 24-year-old former Marine and Iraq War veteran, also was acquitted of two counts of attempted murder.
About two dozen of Chavira's relatives gasped and sobbed for joy as the verdict was read in Pomona Superior Court.
'I thank God justice has been served. Not because he's my son, but because he is innocent,' said Chavira's mother, Sandra Chavira.
Chavira sustained four bullet wounds when two of the gang members opened fire on him as he waited to refuel his truck at the Chevron gas station on La Puente Road and Nogales Street near Nogales High School.
Chavira claimed he shot Zomoza in self-defense.
Prosecutor Ian Phan alleged Chavira instigated the shootout. His case relied heavily on the testimony of an off-duty sheriff's deputy, Toni Veridiano, who claimed to have witnessed the shooting as she drove by."
